    don't leave your bike outside and dont ride it in the rain or through puddles, and dont buy new cranks and a new stem, that would be completely ******** if they still work fine, just get new allen bolts or buy a can of rust remover

    be smart next time and dont leave your bike outside when it rains or at night time because of the dew in the mornings can make it rust

    Dip it in gold and frame it. Then never ride it again.

    Use Navel Jelly to remove the rust. And perhpas a clear coat of paint.

    Check this link.

    That's only if you have a Hutch.

    Points to Darin for suggesting Naval Jelly. That stuff will do the trick. If rust is a big problem in your area (tropical Australian weather near the sea is heaps bad too) then I suggest spraying some WD40 onto a rag, and using that to wipe down all the bits that can rust on your bike. And don't ever leave it outside. Ever.
