grease my freecoaster, tighten my chain because it likes to magically float forward, clean my chain, tighten my spokes, stab my rear tire for being retardedly ungrippy.

Keep the chain clean and lubed,tension the spokes,and keep any unsealed bearings greased,and oil the driver pawls every now and then.
Oh and buy new parts whenever I want for no reason

I clean and check everything before each ride. Lube the chain. Make sure my tires have the right psi. Check chain tension. Make sure everything checks out. About once a month I grease the bb and head.

Tighten every bolt possibly especially axle nuts because it sucks when your pegs get loose when your in the middle of a good grinding session, Dont really lube chain because any jeans would turn it to sh*t if the chain is lubed but I lube all internal parts so nothing gets seazed and no squaky sounds.

Check tires and lube chain, not much more. I don't ride it that much anyway (I have a commuting bike and a MTB too), and never under the rain or in a particulary dusty area so...
But I'm very careful with my bikes and maintain them properly when needed. I like that...

Clean my bike, lube the chain, pump the tires and anything else that needs fixing.

Actually I take more care of my BMX than my regular bike.
My regular bike is like totally demolished.

Once a week i seriously take my bike entirely apart, grease everything that needs it, oil my driver, clean it. Check for cracks in anything etc.. Unless something big breaks like my forks or something, my bike isn't down for the count. Every now and then stuff just breaks an it will take a week or two to get money for parts but besides that, it always runs perfect. Its worth it to do it too. Only takes about a half hour too

Pump the tires if they feel soft.
Tighten stuff if it comes loose.
clean/lube the chain every once in a while.

In the winters i usually go over my bike and get it all ready for next year.
