I've got a GT Transeo 1.0 bike (bought in 2011 or 2010 as best as I can remember) and I'd like to try painting the frame to get rid of some (very minor) surface rust and paint damage.
I've read a bunch of tutorials on spray painting bike frames, and they tend to make a distinction between steel and aluminium frames.
However the official GT website claims that the frame of my bike is made up of "6061 Alloy", which I assume is a reference to an aluminium/magnesium/silicon alloy, even though there is no mention of aluminium anywhere. Is this what is usually meant by an 'aluminium frame' online?
If not (or even if so) what brand of primer+paint+topcoat would work well for such a frame?
