Basically, what thread title says. I'm currently looking for a new place to rent for a year or so and I have an opportunity to get a place in st Kilda, half a block away from the seashore. The place has no garage so the bike will have to stay in an off-street parking spot(no cover). With that in mind, how bad will it be for the bike in terms of rust etc? I ride to work every day so the bike will only be parked at that place at night. For what it's worth, I do have an oxford bike cover for some additional protection. BTW, a slightly different question: how safe is it to park off-street in st Kilda in terms of thieves/vandals? I'm kinda on the fence about renting that place so bike safety/wellbeing will most likely determine my final decision.
