Just to help people its just above the lower triple clamp

Ive seen this too, it's pitted just slightly, the only think I can think of is electrolisys(sp?) occuring between dis similar metals:excuseme:

If it is, the best thing to prevent it is to make sure you dry it good in this area after washing :thumbsup:
