Stem clamp depends on the bars being used, not frame dependent. Others are correct.

OK, here's another Caad7 question.
After racing in rain of biblical proportions yesterday evening I have water in my frame. I can see the drain holes on the seat stays but for the life of me cannot get the water out through them ... and yes I used a little probe to make sure they weren't clogged. Thoughts?

Set it out in the summer sun for a while. It's aluminum,so it won't rust, just make sure your bearings are greased and fugheddaboutit.

Works better to pull the seatpost and turn it upside down to drain. Rotting frogs in the BB are nasty business. There is no greasing of sealed cartridge BB bearings.
