I place great emphasis on health safety & quality for products that I use for hours on a daily basis - like my bicycle. Something so close to my body for hours every day should be very safe (and preferably green).
1. Exactly what are the final elements of Weigle's FrameSaver? A forum search gave some bickering about linseed oil. I don't have the product in front of me nor do I see specific details about it on the internet.
3. Should I worry about the toxicity of this product AFTER it has dried or after water contacts it during rain?
4. Is it true that once you apply this puppy you can go on for years without having to do it?
5. My fork is steel (hence the Weigle) but my frame is aluminum. Aluminum does not rust but it can corrode. Since my LBS is offering to spray the frame too (which is a task I don't want to do), I think I'll get the aluminum done anyway. I know FrameSaver is designed for steel primarily but is it effective for aluminum too?
Boeshield is touted as a less toxic alternative but I understand Boeshield needs to be re-applied every 6 months. I will see my LBS tomorrow who has offered to spray the Weigle in the frames & fork without charge save for the Weigle can itself.
Thank you all for your time and patience.
