I had a good hard ride in the rain Wednesday. I wiped the bike down and cleaned it off as soon as I got in. Thursday I was busy studying for a test so I didn't get to ride or do heavy cleaning. I go to clean the brake shoes and chain today (Friday) and flip the bike over and about half a cup of water pours out the holes in the chainstays near the dropouts (Felt frame). I took the chain off and spun the cranks and everything felt smooth and sounded silent, but did I do any harm? I can't believe I forgot to flip it over.
Maybe yes, maybe no.MR_GRUMPY

Only time will tell.
Check every week. At least 105 BB's are cheaper than Record ones.
