Removing Rust???(2 posts)

I recently drove across country and my bike developed some rust on the chain and the little roller thingys...from being exposed to the elements for so long, I guess.

What's the best way to get it off and cleaned up? Thanks.

Superficial rust on a chain probably doesn't hurt much--normal cleaning and re-lubing will take care of it. You can replace the chain for about 15 bucks if you're worried about it.
I can't figure out what you mean by "little roller thingies," though. The derailleur pullies are plastic, so they won't rust. The little rollers in the chain links? See above.
