    saltwater damage?

    so what's the damage here? took my old bike for a ride on the beach sand and dunked it in the gulf of mexico. I rinsed it off a day later, the chain is rusted, but other than that and my petal spikes. it appears fine... I'll relube the hubs and headset, anything else I should be concerned about. I do wish I didn't dunk a good set of zuzu pedals though.

    It was great fun...here's a cool pic
    I only pedal uphill.

    not sure on the bottom bracket it's a truvative power spline or something like that.. may just replace it, or ride it until it dies. The bottom bracket is the only thing I haven't worked on before and this may be the time to learn. The fork was already seized up, so it only does road duty.. I need a new road oriented bike anyway, but I think I can get this one good enough to put it back on the trainer.
