Review of the JP Weigles Frame Saver Aerosol Can:
It doesn't take too much Frame Saver to treat your precious steel frame. A can of this product should last for some time. Application can be a little messy, if not thought through thoroughly before hand. I personally like to stuff some shop towels in the BB shell, as well as the bearing races in the head tube. One of my favorite "tricks" when applying this product is to place foam earplugs in the seat and chain stays. Then I shoot in the Frame Saver through the vent holes (follow the directions on the can), and cover the vent holes with masking tape. The earplugs expand and seal off the holes to the seat tube and BB shell. You can really coat the inside of your frame this way. When you're sure that you have coated the tubes thoroughly, pull the earplugs and control the flow for clean up purposes. You can also do this with the main and down tubes. The hardest part of using this product is the prep and clean up. Everything else is really K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple, Stupid). And it works great.

Summed up: Strengths: Simple, inexpensive, peace of mind, and almost fun.

Weaknesses: Foul odor (during application only)

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the JP Weigles Frame Saver Aerosol Can:
Stinky, so it must be good. A bit messy (and totally unnecessary according to Jobst Brandt), but worth it for my peace of mind, especially riding a Big Dummy with tons of tubes, some of which are open.

My wife says it smells like coconuts. I may have been slightly too high on fumes to notice. Use outside, wear gloves and clothes you do not mind staining permanantly.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the JP Weigles Frame Saver Aerosol Can:
1. remember that your supposed to be able to do 7 frames with one can so dont over do it the first time. more coats is better than one.

2. do it outside cause its toxic

3. it takes 24 hours to cure so plan ahead

4. spray the frame and then do allot of roatateing and spinning to get the stuff around, imagine your a fire juggler

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the JP Weigles Frame Saver Aerosol Can:
First time user, I sprayed one can on 2 frames with enough leftover for half to 1 more small frame. Work outside in open air, have liner paper or used cardboard (about 3 x 3 ft area) to catch spilling fluid. Spray (~3x each tube top) in a pair of chainstays or seat stays or fork prongs together. Rotate them first in horizontal position then gradually lower to vertical position, all while rotating to let the fluid coat the inside tubings. Once more vertical, expect leftover fluids to run out to tiny vent holes, let it seep all out, then wipe off the ends clean. Use Q-tips if necessary at small grooves. Do same for each time for top/seat/down/head tubes. Dry frame preferrably in ventilated area for a day.

Summed up: Takes a couple of hours to apply, but worth it for the peace of mind from rust.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the JP Weigles Frame Saver Aerosol Can:
As other reviews mention, applying this product to the inside of a frame is not a neat process. I used a large unfolded cardboard box under the repair stand to catch all the drips, and then tossed it out when done. Having never used Framesaver before, only time will tell whether this extends the life of the bike. However, I decided that it was a small investment in time and money if it might help protect the large investment in a nice new steel frame.

Summed up: Messy, but a small investment in preventative maintenance.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.
