Maintenance Schedule?

Is there anywhere out there that lists a potential "maintenance" schedule for road bikes?

Not just the basic clean and lube, but things like how long a chain should last, major adjustments, cable replacements, etc.

I would really be interested. Just would like to know since all I seem to see is what the LBS tells me.

I did a quick search here and at to no avail.

Buy a book.'Zinn and the art of road bike maintenance'. Most if it depends on use,conditions,and need,not time or mileage.But, the ARs love time and or mileage.
