Cause of rust is using cheap chrome plated steel fasteners, plated steel handlebars. etc. These will rust overnight after a ride thru salt spray.

A nice bike has alloy seat posts, handlebars, steerer, steerer, rims, stainless spokes, hydraulic brakes, instead of steel cables. Sometimes, a steel frame works better on certain bikes,
