Addiction 2021.3

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I think it depends on how long you want to keep the bike. A small amount of rust is not a problem in the short term, but it is NOT going to get better and can get worse with time.

If you plan to keep the bike just for a few more years, I would not worry.

If you plan to keep the bike indefinitely, you need to remove the rust down to the bare metal, clean, and repaint it.

If it were me, I would sand/dremel away the rust, paint with similar color rustoleum and not worry about looks, and cover it with a stainless steel chainstay guard.

I just popped over to 'Forum Assistance', and read that the P & R forum is no more. I guess you'll have to take your chances here, datlas

Too bad it's not the censor filter that is no more. Sad!

I don’t want to get rid of it, I wish I could remember if I saw the rust before but I can’t. I’ll have to find the the time to fix it.

I have not taken it apart since I put it together. Little worries the down tube might be rust now too. I hope that is not the case.

Huh? I's not gone. Someone just posed there a few minutes ago.

It was temporarily locked a while back, but it was allowed to continue.

Like datlas said, clean it up, touch it up. You could use a rust inhibitor inside the frame, for extra protection.

I have zero desire to go there. Same thing for trollheim, if that is still around.

I wouldn't say being vegetarian makes you picky. I think being picky makes you picky.

I'll finish packing tonight.

Both excited and nervous. At least the weather looks good for the first two days. It sucks to start out in bad weather. In fact, long range forecasts for the places I will be during the first week looks descent. No major rain events. Knock on wood.
