I've read the higher speed your drivetrain, the faster the wear on the parts. Is this true?
Does anyone have estimates as to how long a 7-speed, 8-speed, 9-speed, 10-speed, or 11-speed drivetrain might last?

If you ride faster and more, it does wear out fairly quickly (compared to slow and infrequently).
