Ok, so I had not ridden one of my road bikes in a while and when I took it down the other day I noticed there was a significant amount of rust on it, and what appeared to be corrosion. Even the new Tektro brakes showed signs of rust and corrosion which really ticked me because they're new and they have only gotten wet once. So I'm at my LBS talking to the guys there about the rust I found on my bike and we were speculating on what might have caused it.
"You don't have any pool chemicals or chlorine near the bike do you?'
Of course not, only a dork would do that....
So when I got back home I investigated a little closer and sure enough there was a 25 gallon drum of chlorine tablets stored directly under my pride and joy. WHAT A DORK!
So I'm planning to use the typical tricks to remove rust and polish the shiny bits again but I thought I would ask if anyone has any experience specifically with chlorine induced corrosion and rust.
I got the chemicals out of the work shop and I'm going to wipe down the area where it was previously stored.
