Brit-bikes rust to buggery - even if they're not ridden in winter, when the councils thoughtfully dump hundreds of tons of salt into the snow to make the melted water especially corrosive: my bikes spent two winters in the UK - locked up in a nice warm shed and not ridden between October & May - and EVERYTHING rusted: alloy grew a fur coat, stainless spokes turned orange - even the damn tyres had green mould on them.
