Do what I did: buy a second (or 3rd and 4th) bike that won't rust, and never ride your nice steel bike in the rain.
I got sick of freaking out about riding my steel Cervelo in the wet, after I once found 1/8 inch of water sitting in the bottom bracket shell.
It gives you an excuse to buy another bike.
I sprayed fish oil on mine, but it was very hard to penetrate every spot, and it wiped right off after it got soaked. So, i thought "stuff it, I just won't ride it on wet days"
