I have an old cromoly bike that had internal cable routing for the rear brake. Problem is, the rubber piece that fits into the frame has fallen apart after all these years. Does anyone know how to prevent rust from forming on the inside of the frame?

You could maybe spray some WD-40 or something in there... with the little straw thing... but I don't really know what I'm talking about so don't do it unless other people agree with me... eh:idea:

POR-15 is great stuff but probably not a good idea for this application (worked wonders on my boat keel, however).

An interior application of Boeshield T-9 or Weigle Frame Saver seem to be the best choice here as a preventer before rust takes hold.

I use T9... everyone says that or frame saver, but WD40 would work. It's cheaper and since it's a closed system once built, you never have to worry about gunk.
