    Frame Saver in a Dragon

    Hey everyone. I bought a new-to-me Dragon Pro. The frame hasn't been treated with FS, and I can't do it myself since it involves taking out the bottom bracket and fork. Until I get my next overhaul, would it do any good to spray some Frame Saver down the seat tube?

    Probably can't hurt. I used wd40 specialist instead of frame saver on my 2009 dragon.
    No rust but the spray did leave a stain on the seat post. I'm pretty sure it's got cosmoline in it. You can also use the straw to spray frame saver into the vents on the bottom of the chain stays.

    I might try that.... The shop will do it, but they'll charge around 175 because, according to them, everything has to be taken off the bike...every bolt, etc.

    You are better off buying a toolkit from price point and some frame saver or something like it and doing it yourself. It's pretty easy and you don't have to take every bolt off.
    Just pop off the wheels and bottom bracket and seat post and you will be able to get enough of the frame

    What about the fork (which is a suspension fork)?

    I forgot to say remove the fork which is only three bolts. You can keep the stem and handle bars all together and just set them aside carefully.

    Got the FS today. Their instructions for a complete bike are to just spray in the seat tube and in one of the water bottle screw holes. I did this, and a little extra. I strongly recommend doing exactly what they say, and no more. Better yet, just wait until your next complete overhaul and do it then. The stuff is indeed a little messy and unpredictable!
