Okay, so I'm thinking about buying a used, black Stage 1 Schwinn Rocket that comes with a Manitou Black fork and Fox Float rear shock. It also has an XTR front deruailler and a Titec seatpost. The guy let me take it home to look at it and clean it up a bit. There are no cracks, dents, or rust on the frame, only a few minor scratches. However, on the heads of the bolts, where the hex wrence goes in, that the rear suspension pivots on there is some rust. Should I be concerned? Also, can I remove the rust, like with some drops of WD40 or something else, or replace the bolts. Can they be replaced? If I can, I will try to post some pics. I was having problems with it telling me that that "the page is not ready" each time I click on upload. Anyway, thanks for the advice!
