I had some brazing done on a couple of my bikes. I don't want to paint them right now. I read that primer only will not prevent rust. What's the best way to treat the metal to prevent rust without painting? Recommended products? Thanks.

Tung oil and a rough pad. You can leave the steel raw/unpainted and do it once a month or so to remove any oxidation. A real rust issue would only be of concern if it went for a long period of time without any sort of upkeep. Leaving it as is, it would first develop a hazy coat which the oil would remove. This does no damage to your frame. Bikes finished with a patina rather than paint are kept up this way.
