Regarding chain life:
The previous chain that was on Hidalgo was a Tsubaki Omega X-ring chain and I pulled it off after 43,000 miles. I went back with a Tsubaki Sigma X-ring chain.
Cleaning/lubricating is generally handled by a ScootOiler. Until last week I hadn't done a full chain maintenance in a *long* time. And that is because I went down a dirt road for about 15 miles when my GPS decided that it was a shorter way and the entire back of Hidalgo was crusted in dirt/dust.
