Well, ten or so years ago, when I had little regard for my mountain bike, and would go pretty much anywhere, I rode down streams on the beach and out into Puget Sound a couple of times. I got as deep as the top tube, and had my water bottle pop out and float to the surface, so most everything but the shifters were immersed in salt water. The bottom bracket and lower headset bearings were the two parts which later died an horrible death. That was salt water, of course. Never had any trouble with the hubs, though. I have since abandoned the salt water immersions.
