So the bike path had a small puddle across it this morning. At this point the path has fences on both sides as it goes under an overpass, so no way around. I start through only to quickly realize two things, the puddle is deep, like top of my tires deep; and the puddle is in fact part of the nearby river the bike path follows.
Froze my little toes the rest of the way. There were a total of four places where the river had overrun its banks, but the other three I managed to go around. And to think I almost left the neopreme long underwear off this morning.
Question: How bad is it for my hubs/bottom bracket/deraileurs to be submerged for a good 30 seconds?
Do you do any special maintenance after going through an "above the hubs" puddle?
