Hi all,

This is on a Caad10 AL bike.

Both bolt sections/spacers of the brake shows some rust and I wonder if that needs to be changed out.

If so, where would I find something like that and possible lighten it at the same time.

Another thing is that I just went through a muddy day with my bike and wash the entire bike with soap and water.

Other than the chain, anywhere else that one must lube? Any pointers are welcome!

If you buy a "Titanium Recessed Brake Nut" it will not rust.

Thx Sedluk.

Any word on the places to lube after a full wash?

They also sell aluminum ones as well, even lighter. If you're in the US try Jersey Cycles. Same basic inventory and pricing but quicker shipping.
