- Steel frame paint chips
I have an old Kona Lava Dome that I’m converting to a commuter. It’s a bike that’s done the rounds, had it since new and ’96 vintage.
I’m sure it’s going to do a good job, but I was looking at the frame today when I was stripping a few parts off it and there sure are a lot of chips in the paint!
The looks don’t concern me, and there’s no rust that I can see. So should I be concerned with the numerous chips? Will rust destroy the frame if I put it back into daily action?Posted 4 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
+1, my commuter has more rust than paint, still sound despite being of undetermined vintage (probably 60’s). Anyone actualy seen a steel frame die from rust? Think about it, the underside of a car gets more of a battering in a single winter than your bike ever will, and it’ll do 10+ years.Posted 4 years agoTurnerGuyMember
