I keep my chain and sprockets clean, adjusted and lubed PROPERLY and can get 15-20K miles. I'm certainly not easy on my bikes.
Same here. I've seen TOO many guys with rusty chains. Clean/lube at least every 500 miles. Always change sprockets and chain at the same time. Keep 'em serviced and they'll last like TheX said. If it "squeaks" before the 500 mile interval, service it then. A chain/sprocket set ain't cheap. Always buy a reputable/proven brand, even though it may cost more.
