|Back at my teenager time, I rode in the flood many times. One time I felt into openned man hole and broke my bike in two. I am still laughing everytime I think about it.|

|Having riden through water that deep, I can easily see how you'd churn up that much spray. You think spokes drag in air? Imagine what they do in WATER!
Second, what "maniacal personal watercrafter" wears a raincoat?
|Hmmm can we test an a disc?||Sprint-Nick|

|Anyone want to lend their disc out so we can test the difference in affect between a regular spoked wheel and a disc?
|I don't think so||Crankist|

|Well, the spray is the issue. And I certainly can't say for sure that it is retouched; I haven't yet had the good fortune of blasting through deep water on a bike. However next flood we have in in New Mexico I'll be sure to test the waters, so to speak- probably on a borrowed bike.
Raincoat? That would be part of the retouching.
