Is there anything you can use on the external parts of a frame to prevent rust?
I'm about to buy a steel road bike. I do not have the know-how yet to successfully pull all the parts off, rust-proof the frame, and then put them back on again.
Everything that I have read says to spray some brand of rust-proofing into the tubes themselves. However, I was wondering if there were an way to avoid that removing the cranks and everything to get to the bottom bracket. Is it possible to just wax it or something like that?
Or maybe just spray a ton of the rustproof down the seat-tube? Although I doubt that it would evenly distribute at that point.
