Anyone with BD chrome frame? How's it holding up?

Just wondering if the chrome is pitting/rusting after a few years. I have vivid flashbacks of '80s chrome bmx frames of my youth that did not age well.

I have a chrome jury from bike island that's holding up well enough. I ride it in bad weather all the time, but I'm pretty good about rinsing it off and drying it before I put it away. I'm sure it won't last forever, but it wasn't too expensive either.

Chrome frames can benefit from keeping them waxed. Use a quality car wax and dry if it gets wet.
