    Corrosion and Car Wax?

    My fatbike is living on the coast for the summer. Fun!

    I just went and bought some Turtle Wax and sprayed down my hubs and chainring bolts, the stem bolts, seatpost bolts, and my spoke nipples. Think that'll actually do something, or do I need a more serious surface protectant?

    Not worried, but I don't necessarily want to replace out rust-caked bolts before winter, when I'll need to corrode the daylights out of my bolts again!

    you'd be better off just putting Boeshield T-9 | Corrosion Protection and Waterproof Lubrication all over any corrosive parts.

    Vehicle Wax will do the same thing, just won't last near as long.

    Any spray wax is better than none.

    Paste waxes are more protective than Spray "waxes".

    Most spray waxes are just silicone with almost no actual wax.
