Maybe a better clamp or some adhesive to wrap around the tubes/connectors? As for maintenance, any thing I could be doing to ensure that everything runs well and reliably?
What you're seeing as "leakage" is most certainly chain lube. I kept the chain well oiled with spray chain lube. It makes the rear wheel, in particular, filthy, as well as the chain stay on that side.
When asking for advice, you did not specify whether you wanted only good advice.
