I noticed a bit of rust colour in the grease when I removed the seatpost. What should I be doing to protect my frame?
btw. I'm reading a couple of long threads about XCr at the Italian forum, http://www.bdc-forum.it (one of the contributors is Dario Pegoretti) but it's all technical stuff that you've probably read already. If I find and actual ride review I'll post it here.
