My steel roadie used to get covered in salt spray, rain, grit ec with no ill effects.
What's more interesting is that marine air (particularly with rain) reveals the dielectric differences between metals. Steel spokes/ferrules & Al rims, steel frames and Al seat posts, as well as the edges & scratches in anodized Al or steel, powder coated steel, etc. It also reveals crappy stainless steel bolts (like a stainless Allen head bolts in an Al stem, or metal fasteners in Al derailleurs, crappy chrome, etc.

To to answer the OP's question though; CF frame, bars, stem, seat post, rims, synthetic seat, enclosed chain case, internal geared hub, canti brakes (grit on discs is annoying but I like discss), anodized Al (hubs, headset, BB, etc).
