U can get anti rust spray paint in your local auto shop and probably way cheaper than what framesaver costs. Frame saver is a just anti corrosion black paint.

I used weigle's framesaver in the past and it's what I'm familiar with. 13 dollars for a can isn't that big of a sacrifice for me. :D

threaded is preferred. But if the price is right I can buy the appropriate adapter

Hmmm... mine's actually a brown, waxy substance (at least when dry). Are we both talkin' about Wiegle's FrameSaver?

Ni idea whats that, i bought long time ago a rust conversion paint, anything that is rust gets black, it is a paint that will stick to metal and will seal and kill any rust in metals. I used it in a car and in a bike frame years ago and worked like a charm.

rust conversion paint =/= frame saver or rust inhibitor.

This is totally wrong. Framesaver is not a paint. It is an oily, waxy substance that coats the insides of the tubes and then semi-solidifies into a waxy film. The color is a dark amber. It is a great product. Some use Boeshield T-9, but I have no experience with it.

If this is true and frame saver only coats the surface, than it's not the best product for a frame. You want something that converts the rust to an inert surface. There are lots of products out there that do this. Oxflow, Navel jelly, the rust converting paint mentioned.This is totally wrong. Framesaver is not a paint.

1.)Weigle's stuff is currently out of stock in the US...Boeshield and automotive rust inhibators work also
2.) Get a post 2008 Campagnolo FD(all FDers then made for CT or normal cranks) or really any normal Campagnolo FD, they work great, better than the 'CT' FD, IMHO.
3.)I have these new-$130
4.)I can get this NIB-$140

just chiming in on the anti-corrosion stuff : any marine store will have anti-corrosion spray, to be used in a marine environment (read: salt water, highly corrosive), works great for steel frames.

Framesaver and like products do NOT convert rust to some other form or substance. Metal protective products coat the unpainted steel to PREVENT rust from occuring. No oxygen = no rust. If your frame has enough rust to consider using a rust CONVERTER, throw it away and start over. Besides, rust converters are ineffective (from my limited experience on non-cycling applications).

hey potatoe,

I actually have boeshield and do not really trust it since it's more watery than the weigle stuff. hopefully someone on here knows where to get a can.

thanks for tip on the FD!

Framesaver - My local shop has a couple of cans. I think they are something like $16-$18/can. Let me know if you want me to pick one up and mail it to you.

Boeshield is a lot tougher than you might think. It was developed by Boeing Aircraft to prevent rust and corrosion on their airplanes. It migrated to the marine industry because it works so well. Boeshield's 'watery' appearance is due to the solvents that carry the actual substances that give Boeshield is properties. The solvents evaporate somewhat quickly, leaving behind a waxy substance that really coats the metals.

I use Boeshield when I run out of Framesaver.
