How to Remove Rust on Bicycles?

Answer

When you want to remove rust on a bicycle and specifically its chain, flip the bike upside down. Loosen the two bolts that lock the rear wheel to the frame. Push the rear wheel forward to allow play in the chain. Slide the chain off the rear sprocket with a screwdriver. Remove the rear wheel completely. Remove the chain from the front pocket by a screw driver. Spray oil lubricant on the chain and allow it to soak in for about a minute. Scrub the rusty areas using steel wool to get rid of the rust. Wipe the chain with a rag. Apply a few drops of clean oil to the chain. Pull the rear tire backwards once the chain is on. Tighten the rear-frame bolts with the wrench.
