I think I ride too much. too many worn out parts.

Got over 9000 miles on my bulls crossover. about 1.5 years of riding. got great life out of the Schwalbe Marathon plus about 8000 0n the front I screwed the back up so I can't know how long that would have lasted. on the 5th chain and the shifting is getting a little clunky.one shifter cable cause there was no practical way to lube it so I replaced it. headset bearings were not sealed and after months of riding in the rain they were leaking rusted grease. rear wheel rim had cracked after 9000 miles shop said it was just normal wear and tear. but it was a cheap rim. I was hearting a clicking sound I could not find out what it was. Mechanic found it the pedals are all sloppy. well about 8000 miles on them rain and shine so they need rebuilt but that's only about 20.00. second set of hand grips just replaced those cant complain about that life. I ride every day ifI am not injured and there is no ice or snow on the ground. I got 156 miles this week and I got 6000 miles in a year.

Saw your title and thought that is the nature of old age.

The good thing about wearing out parts is you get to upgrade to better ones.

On a bike at least...

Same here, like wearing out bikes and not body parts.
Old age and muscle, tendon, bone wear, and strength decreases are all inevitable so ride nice bikes to minimize this and maximize the fun !
