Most bikes have threaded inserts, but if you're using fasteners in direct contact with bare aluminum, stainless steel is not recommended, due to possible galvanic corrosion. A good coating of anti-seize will help, but galvanized/zinc-plated fasteners are a better choice. (Anti-seize is recommended in all cases.)


Michael is right of course. If my rig was aluminum I would do the same. My winter ride is steel. Good call Michael. - Chuck

Not sure I can bring myself to spray lubricant inside my frame... wont that act to attract dirt and moisture? Wouldn't it be better to spray paint as a sealant like you did with the other exposed metals? =)
