    Surly pre-rust Treatment

    I am getting a surly built up here in a few days and i wanted to know if any of you use any kind of spray or whatnot insdie the frame to prevent corrosion on a steel frame.. I figure while its bare it wouldn't hurt to treat it now.. thanks

    yeah

    I've heard linseed oil is the same thing, but 1 can of Weigels will do 3-4 frames/applications. Give yourself a solid day to apply, since you're supposed to turn the frame a couople of times for max exposure.

    i've used boeshield from a spray can for the last couple o' years. works fine, easier to find, and flows a little better than the weigle stuff. don't get me wrong; framesaver is a great product, and probably lasts longer, but there are alternatives if you don't have it handy.

    agree on confidence, disagree on ease of use.

    I used boiled linseed oil, it was a pain in the butt to do, and a big mess, but I feel better having done it.
