Welcome to the forum.
Could you give us more specifics, like where the bike is stored (indoors or out), cleaning regimen and products used to clean (too corrosive perhaps ???)

Mine has 6000+km, garaged, cleaned monthly and no rust issues.

An easy preventative measure... some ACF50 on a cloth and then rubbed over your spokes... simples

No rust issue here, yet, but if it happens I will ask the dealer to replace with stainless (at material cost to me, of course) to avoid down time in the future. Just an idea...
