ATTENTION TREK 5900(3 posts)

May 29, 2001 8:25 PM
I just did my first 100 in the rain! I was shocked to learn that my wheels (SESTRIERE) were full of water! When I removed the wheels I got a surprise!!!! My 5900 also had water in it!!!! I removed just under one cup of water from the frame! Who knows how it got there?
I would like to know if this is a normal thing or have I got a problem?
Please reply with any info on this, or a cure.

the rain in your rims is fairly common though annoying with a number of different rims, rolf used to have a serious problem with it that they fixed to some extent with vent holes. The water in the frame may have gotten in through the seat tube though I wouldn't have expected that much to get in. Might want to leave the bike upside down with no seat post in it to make sure it really dries out inside. The frame shouldn't be harmed from it though. TTFN

Remove the seat tube and drain, also remove the front fork and drain.
Yeah its a pain, but water can collect in those 2 tubes.
