|Anyone else get alot of H2O in their wheels on rainy rides?||Screaming Barfy|

|When I got home last night after about 35mi in the rain I noticed that there was a good amount (2-3oz maybe?) of water in both of my wheels. I'm assuming this problem is unique to Ksyrium wheels (or those of similar construction) that have a "box-frame" as opposed to just the open rim. The water isn't in between the tube/tire but inside the actual wheel frame itself.
Anyone else run across a similar problem?
Any good solutions besides just dumping it out through the valve stem hole?

|Noticed quite a few posts lately on this topic due to the rainy weather here in the East. I put at least 2000 miles a year off road on my cyclocross bike and the wheels always fill with water, mud and gravel. I've never had a flat because of it...only pinch flats, and rarely clean them.
Ritchey Aero Pro and Mavic Open Pro wheels.
Roads bikes are tough...the original mountain bikes-its surprising how much they can take!
