Just an FYI, Surly frames are not stainless steel, they are 4130 CroMoly steel :)


I would guess that the crankset and hubs are also not stainless steel.


As Brent said, the frame is Cromo. If you're concerned about rust (which it seems like you are) strip the parts off and give it a shot of frame saver. It's this goop that comes in a spray can that coats the inside of your frame. Make sure you use it outside though because it makes a lot of smelliness and messiness. Also, I totally dig the shoelace idea. Much more elegant than the stuff-em-in-the-top technique i use.


Your bike rocks for sure! I personally prefer cromo because if it breaks you can weld it much easier than SS. I really like your duct tape idea and may do something similair on my seat post. I have cables routed on my top tube. Thanks for the great ideas!
