Any idea where I can purchase this? Any experiences? Complaints? Hard to apply?

any bike shop can order. Also available at Excel. Its fairly easy to do (I've done it to 2 frames) but its a bit messy. Do it outside or somewhere that can get messy. Have plenty of rags and solvent. Strip the frame and fork. Cover up vents as described in instructions and blast a few seconds of the stuff in each tube. Plug the hole with a paper towel and spin the frame around every which way to coat every surface. Wipe off any drippings immediately. Let dry. The hard part is stripping and rebuilding the frame
What if you're already seeing a little rust?KLM

Can you just apply Weigle's over the rust or do you have to use something like Naval Jelly to remove all the rust first? I want my Zurich to last as long as possible. :)

Thanks,
Ken

The Frame Saver directions say you can apply over existing rust to prevent further damage. I have not tried that myself

Thanks all...I hate having to strip my frame, but I do want my bikes to last forever...

Go to a Nissan car dealer and ask for a can of Heavy Duty Rust Preventative P/N 999MP-AE000. This product is designed to be used on raw metal and works great on raw frame tubes. It is a bit messy and smelly so use it with good ventilation. Good luck.
