    So. I have a place down at the coast where I do most of my riding. Now, I only get to go down a few times a month and sadly have to leave my bicycle down there. I usually clean and oil it twice, but if I leave it for two weeks the salt air really deals some damage. Usually it tends to effect brake cables, any exposed metal pieces. How would I protect this from happening? I've done some research, like a guy at a local shop down there suggested using Pledge, which I did. But he said it had to be done every few days. Luckily, coming August I'll be down there full time, and will clean my bike more often.

    -Thanks guys!
    -Sam.

    Where do you leave it? Outdoors?

    Use a purpose designed rust preventative.

    Nah, it's inside. But, it's usually left for 2-3 weeks at a time. But, the place tends to get pretty humid.
