    I do use my bike year round, washing it at least once a week during the Winter months, not fitted these that long ago, not that impressed with the spots/signs of rust already. :151: Everyone else experiencing the same?

    I have no symptoms of oxide, it will be that I do not give him time because I take the bike daily and I do an average of 120 kilometers.

    And that you live in the Spanish climate rather than the UK one. :008:

    If it is correct Specifically in a city in the province of Barcelona that is very humid, I work every day throughout the city of Barcelona.

    Salt will do that sort of damage overnight.

    Its a PITA but rinsing down every ride would be the only solution, maybe some ACF50 but well away from braking surfaces.
    Love, light, and kindness,

    The EBC disks have a 12 month guarantee, (I had mine replaced after a few thousand miles as they warped), but not sure if it covers corrosion. It's a poor stainless steel if it rusts.

    Yes, that's what I'm thinking, poor quality stainless steel. :003:
