Kreitler Roller owners...Questions
I've owned a set now for almost a year and am looking for a couple of suggestions and have questions for long time owners / users. Have replaced the pin/ring chain that secures the front roller, due to corrosion, I assume, from sweat. Anyone else have this problem, and aside from the obvious of wiping down the frame, anything used to coat or protect those parts from more corrosion? I'm a bit surprised they don't just make them out of stainless steel (especially considering the price of the entire set-up).
Do you also wax or otherwise protect the frame for the same reason?
How often do you replace the belt?
And any preventive maintenance on the rollers or bearings themselves?
Appreciate any insights...
