\r?\n> I remember reading advice to apply ammonia as a

\r?\n> penetrant to the stem / fork junction, (or seat-tube

\r?\n> /

\r?\n> seat post junction) because the oxidation of the

\r?\n> alloy

\r?\n> post dissolves quickly with ammonia...


\r?\n> NOW... I'm a Banker and not a Chemist... so I invite

\r?\n> any chemists, metallurgists, backyard mechanics to

\r?\n> correct me / advise us if by chance ammonia and

\r?\n> alloy

\r?\n> combines to form CS Nerve Gas..


\r?\n> Wonder if I can find that reference in my vast

\r?\n> unfiled

\r?\n> disorganized files of clippings, e-mails, etc..
