    How to get rid of this rust?

    Seems as though I've got some rust specks starting on my handlebars (14 year old Trek 800 Sport).

    Can anyone offer some insight as to how to fix it?

    Thanks!!image.jpgimage.jpg

    Rub with aluminum foil, Google for suggestions on what to mix it with, water, cider vinegar etc.

    If you are using the bike on technical trails and single-track a lot, you might want to consider a new set of handlebars. If there's rust on the outside, then it could be even worse on the inside of the bars. That might lead to a catastrophic failure when you are jumping over a rock or something.

    I don't do any true mountain biking, I just use it on the road for leisure/fitness (I put the thread in this forum because the bike itself is considered a "mountain bike".... or so I was told)

    Sorry, just a newbie

    If your bike isnt getting dirty, then you arent doing it right.
