    any chemicals or cleaning fluids suggestions????

    Most are messy and difficult to apply to such a small area. If you go that way make sure you remove tube and tyre as the rust remover will probably degrade the rubber

    Not sure its appropriate to suggest the female members here have rusty nipples, so i wont.:)
