edge surface rust

Recommended Posts

Took out my fairly new Coiler for the first ride of the season last week. It looked like there was some surface rust on the edges and even after a day's riding I noticed that there was still some dark discoloration in spots. No colour rubs off when I wipe those areas so I assume this is nothing to be concerned about? I'm sure it would look cleaner if I tuned it, but is it necessary?

I did try to cover the edges with wax when putting them away for the summer, but I guess I missed some spots.

A Gummi Stone will take the discoloration off and have your edge lookng clean, shiny, and smooth. Will remove micro-burrs, too. It's not a bad idea to carry both a gummi and a ceramic or diamond stone in your pocket this time of year--unless you are in Colorado, where the rocks are already waaaaay down deep in the snowpack.
