How much maintenance?

I've purchased a nice hybrid (a Trek Fx) and plan on using it as my daily commuter, maybe averaging 50 miles per week on it.

What regular and preventative maintenance do I need to perform on the bike to keep it riding well? Please provide a basic description as well as a rough schedule (e.g. "clean the chain monthly").

    I asked that same question here, about a commuter bike ridden 40 km/day (100 miles/week): commuter - How much maintenance? – ChrisW May 8 '11 at 12:15

  • Thanks Neil, I'm reading over the others and think they're comprehensive enough for me (I'm a newb). I'll ask more detailed/pointed questions if they arise. Thanks guys – STW May 8 '11 at 14:56
