Avid BB7 disc brakes rusting.help!
ok so i have had avid bb7 disc brakes on my trek 4500 fro a month now, but i am at college and have no where to keep the bike inside, so i am wondering what is the best way to prevent rust because i can not afford to by new disc brakes.
If it's only light surface rust (which it undoubtably is) just let it go. It will wear off very quickly during your first, very noisy, brake application. Anything you could apply to keep the rust from occurring will do very bad things to your braking system. Take a look at car brake rotors after a heavy rain. You'll see every one of them with surface rust. It's not that big of a deal.
Alternatively, and for the sake of the rest of your bike, a simple cover would keep the majority of the moisture off the bike. Your brake rotors rusting should be the least of your concerns honestly.
bikes dont survive for long outside.
chromed steel hardware ... rust happens.. stainless steel costs more..
What does that have to do with a disc brake rusting?
