The thaw after the freeze
Before you get the hacksaw out and begin cutting off seatposts, crank bolts, and other rusted, seized bike parts, give them a shot of Finish Line's Chill Zone and watch the magic.
- Q & A
I have a carbon fiber steerer tube and a CF headset dust cap that are fused together with aluminum oxide from an alloy stem. Is Chill Zone okay to use on carbon fiber?
You definitely *do not* want to use Chill Zone! That will most likely crack the epoxy used in carbon fiber layup. I would recommend using very hot water first (on a rag, using gloves if necessary) to help break down the corrosion layer. If that doesn't work, use a little PB Blaster lubricant. That is safe for carbon, though don't go overboard on the amount you use. One of those 2 methods should free it up. Let me know how that works!
