    My nuts are rusting..

    Are there track nuts that are stainless and not chromed? Who makes them and where to get them from?

    Thanks Dolface. I would have google'd, however, I was looking for a bit of opinion from some experienced folks.

    Of course I could have said that here and been clear, but that would make sense. And why would I start doing that?

    I just put tape around my nuts to keep them safe from all of the bad elements out there.

    For the hex-headed bolts, I use a dab of clear Tectyl on a cotton stick every now and then, very efficient. I would have used the stuff on track nuts too if I had a problem with rust.

    You could always rub yer nuts with some Nevr-Dull Magic Wadding Polish.

    My nuts are rusty too. That is, the nuts on my IRO hubs.

    They were fine until I got into some nasty salty roads this winter. Once the nuts got the salty slush on them, they rusted in just a few days. Too bad. That's my only complaint about the IRO hubs.

    Anyone have similar experiences with their IRO hubs?

    Yes, yes, i do, my iro nuts are rusted too, but just the front set. I ride by the ocean everyday, so it could be that.

    it's amazing, the more you use your nuts, the more they get rusty. and here i thought it was the other way around.

    i hardly ever touch my front nuts, but my rear nuts i play with more regularly. Not just for screwing around but to actually pull something off, like a wheel.

    Do you use a tug with your rear nuts? I've heard that people have good things to say about getting their nuts tugged.
