Is it salty environment? Most of you live near coastal places.
Knock on wood... but I haven't had any rust showing here. In spring, after the salted roads of our long winter season, I tend to wash the bike a lot to ensure that the road grime and salt mixture doesn't have time to corrode anything.
Two other bikes I have ridden to San Francisco to beachfront vacation properties (not mine, rented) and they have literally shown signs of rusting overnight from the briny air.
