comment How do I remove rust from my seat tube?
@meagar: You should be lubing your seatpost in any case (assuming it's metal). A very thin coat of grease on the post will prevent galling or corrosion between the post and the frame, and may help keep out water that causes the corrosion you found. If your post slips, you need to tighten your collar and/or use less grease. But you should lube it if you want to be sure to get it out again later.

comment Can I fit road tyres on a cyclo cross bike?
Agreed that 35 seems way wide for that rim. I would think it would feel really squirmy in turns.
