I put a zinc-plated Connex chain on my commuter back in Autumn. It hasn't needed re-lubing once this winter. Highly recommended.
I tend to completely strip and clean my bikes 1-2 times a year. Other than that I just lube the chains. Although I have developed a silly habit of cleaning the tire sidewalls, makes the Michelin/Continental logos look nicer.
I regularly ride in the rain so it gets a bit silly trying to maintain a pristine looking bike.
