So, a few of my parts are beginning to rust... I've had my bike for a couple of years, and it's mainly been sat in my shed and occasionally ridden around (hadn't starting doing/learning tricks until recently).

What should i do about them? WD40 + Bowl over night? Or should i just replace them?

It's just a few bolts and spacers, but should i get new ones or not bother?

Probably just surface rust. Good hi tensile steel bolts do that.

You could give em a quick soak, grease the threads and dab them with black nail polish on the areas of concern and see how that goes?

My fork and my bars were and they hold up for long time. And for bolts, i kept them in a glass of coke for 1 day and the rust was gone.

this is my friend, BMX4Lyfee's bike. He purposely rusted out the frame. He has since rusted out the bars as well. Looks freaking awesome.

Point: let that shit rust son.

Funny thing is, i actually considered letting it all rust. Maybe i'll do it as i start to build a new one.

I got a sheriffs badge with a bit of rust on it.

Freestyle is the answer to everything --
a fresh way to approach a dull or a
dangerous thing.
to do a dull thing with style
is preferable to doing a dangerous thing
without it.

I did that a bunch of times with my frame but it never got an even rust look it was always patchy or little spots
