Has anyone rust proof their frames with Frame Saver when they built their bikes? Got any good tips in doing this properly and neatly?

Or most people here have carbon fiber/titanium bikes that this isn't a concern?
Follow the instructions. Be sure to tape up every little hole in the frame.

I use Boeshield on all my bikes. Seems to work so far - four seasons of riding on steel mountain and cyclocross bikes without any rust inside the tubes.

I sprayed some inside the tubes when I built them up (or, in the case of the cx bike, when I bought it) and then reapply it during the annual "tear it all down and build it back up again" cleaning.

Some people argue that you really don't need anything and that rust is not as much of a problem as it's made out to be. That may be true but, for the price of a bottle of Boeshield or Framesaver, I'd rather err on the side of caution and not worry about it. I don't leave near any large bodies of saltwater, though, so YMMV.
