So I got caught riding in a downpour the other day. It was only for about 10 minutes or so, but myself and my bike got totally drenched.
After my bike sat unused for 2 days I took it out today. Everything is dry now. But, I noticed a "clicking" or "snapping" sound that I'd never heard before, coming apparently from the bottom bracket. It became more pronounced the harder I mashed.
I stopped and tightened everything in the drive train that I could get a wrench on, and even lubed the chain. As we know, there aren't that many moving parts on a SS and a very limited amount of things that can go wrong. The sound lessened, but didn't totally go away until I rode for several miles.
My question is: Am I looking at a future/premature failure of my bottom bracket?
