paint loss on fork dropouts
When I carry our tandem in the back of my truck I use a "bike tight" fork mount rack. This has caused paint loss in the dropouts on the steel fork. There is no rust to be seen at this point but, I want to make sure I never get any rust. My fork is custom "fade" painted so I cant match the paint exactly but, I wouldnt need to as it's just the dropouts. All our other bikes are either front suspended or carbon fiber so, I've never had to deal with this problem b/4.
What do you guys do in this situation? Should I keep re painting the dropouts? Or just get a good rust inhibitor (sp?) and use in / on the drops outs frequently?
