    Rust in steel frame issue?

    Hey.

    By issue, do you mean, "is my frame about to rust through?" Then I'd say no, not an issue. I'd say it's time to spray some framesaver/boeshield/rust inhibitor of your choice in there (hell, has anyone tried WD 40?)

    I drill drain/vent holes in the bottom of my bottom bracket shells. Then again, I live where the trail is usually dry and the air is dry, too. This is a matter of open debate. Not necessarily recommending it, but it's an option.

    I'd wire brush the loose stuff, clean it out, then dose it with one of the above mentioned products. I use CorrosionX HD Marine. It's a product I have used for years for extensive applications on boats in the nasty saltwater marine environment. It works very well for frame applications. I dosed my Karate Monkey frame when it was brand new by spraying it into all the tubing drain holes and BB and orienting the frame so that it would run throughout the interior of the tubing.
