Hello this will no doubt sound a obvious question but noticed on one of my bikes that some of the screws on the stem and pedals are a bit orange/rusty. What is the best thing to do to get them shiny again :?

    Interesting solution above :shock:
    Use a magnet and see if it sticks to the offending bolts. If it does then the bolts are plated steel or low quality stainless.
    The permanent solution is to replace the bolts, top quality stainless is not magnetic.
    There are many bolt suppliers on Ebay here is one.
