Last Saturday we rode the last 55 miles of a 65 mile ride in an all out downpour. This Saturday I got around to cleaning up the bike (Trek T200) and decided it was time for a new transfer chain. When I loosened the eccentric bottom bracket I was amazed to see about a half a cup of water come running out. The water was clear, not rusty, so I'm sure it just came in during last week's ride. I have no idea how it got into the tubes.
Has anyone else had this happen? If we had ridden after the rain stopped would the water have worked itself out? Will I have to "drain" the eccentric every time we ride in the rain (what a pain), or is there a better way to get the water out?
