Hi All, My bike has steel wheel rims, which I'm having a hell of a time keeping clean and rust/tar free. Unfortunately, I have to keep my bike parked on the road, so it's bound to get wet, which I think adds to the problem. When I first noticed this problem, I thought the rims were actually rusting -- there appeard to be rust blooms all over the rim. However, with a chrome poslish, and hard rubbing, I was able to remove most of the blemishes. Now, I think it's not the wheel that's rusting, but probably brake dust, plus some road tar, etc. mixed in. Unfortunately, that first cleaning didn't last long, and I find the apparent rust coming back within a few days. And, it seems to be getting harder to clean. The last time I did it, the chrome polish didn't seem to be working, so I used a kitchen sink lightly abrasive sponge, which worked much better. So basically, I'm sick of having to clean the wheels. Does anyone know of any method/product which will protect the wheels? BTW, I should have mentioned that the rust blooms also appear on the handlebars, so perhaps it's not brake dust after all. But still, I don't think the steel is actually rusting, since I'm able to clean it off with just some hard scrubbing. Any ideas? Thanks.
