And their is rust in the frame, and its in a spot I cannot reach. How can I remove the rust, and what happens if I leave it? Will my frame eventually turn into dust?

This is full chromoly.

Put some oil on it, it'll seal it and prevent it from getting worse.

No, your frame will not turn into dust.... it's just surface rust dude, it'll be fine...

Just don't leave your bike outside anymore...


I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

i leave my bikes outside through pa winter, under a roof but i'm sure the temperature changes don't help much. anyways, they always get a rust spot or 2. just ride it, maybe rub some oil on for a bit then clearcoat over it when it dries

Wipe your bike down with some WD-40, put WD-40 anywhere you think the rust might be, Just sheen the surface of the metal(Not in bearings, unless you think there's water in them and want to clean them) with WD-40 it'll displace any water(and grime from the water) and helps prevent rust, THEN add a sheen of oil on the whole bike and oil your bearings,chain and driver-this will also help displace water and prevent rust, SEAL your bearings with a layer of marine grease (I use white lightning) and also seal places that could allow water to seep into the Bike like the seatpost, The Headset/Headtube even the bottom of the Steering tube. This is the best way in my experience to prevent rust when it's wet/humid.

Surface rust isn't an issue, just so long as your Bearings, Chain, Sprocket and Driver don't get rusty. It's good to keep oil your drivetrain with teflon lube every couple weeks or so to keep it waterproof and smooth.
