    Linseed Oil to prep a new Frame?

    OK, this is my first bike build. Im hoping my frame arrives soon. A surly OGRE.
    I read that Linseed oil is good for coating the inside, and I already have some. Is that good or should I get Rust Oleum or something?
    Im 56, and so Ill probably die before the frame goes anyway.

    I've used Framesaver and LPS3 on various steel bikes.

    I use wd40 specialist. I'm pretty sure it's the same as framesaver. Easier to find.
    I respray every summer.
