To head back to the original question as to how long components last. What should we be looking for to suggest that some components are on their last legs?

Chain "stretched", cogs worn like shark fins, jockey wheels worn to a point, cables rusty and hard to shift, cables with broken strands, tyres squared due to wear and repeated punctures, noisy bearing etc etc.

Sheldon Brown's site is great for learning about these things.
