anyone got some good tips on protecting chromed steel from rusting? my bike is entirely chromed, and it has a few chips here & there, with the BB showing some rust through also. i ride in the rain etc, so im wondering if there is anyway i can protect it or stop the rust from taking over?
I’m not sure about protecting the chrome (I’d like to know too), but even bad corrosion can be removed with some steel wool (without soap) and a light oil - either machine oil or even some kind of cooking oil will do.
It works well but if the corrosion is bad, expect to spend wuite some time and elbow grease at it - hence why my fork is still only partially cleaned up.
Once it is reasonable, I use a rust convertor, think they’re all phosphoric acid based, and then wipe over with Penetrol. Still has to be kept an eye on and re-done occasionally, sweat is the main enemy.
