    Partol (and Scout?) Carbon Frame Water Ingress

    Does anyone else with a carbon frame have issues with water ingress? If I ever hose the bike down, even lightly, water creeps down the dropper post routing TIT (sorry had to) and is trapped inside the frame. I've had to pull the dropper and drain the frame of water, it's been up to ounces from a single hose down.

    I made a sort of e-tape plug around the cable that nestles into the opening, but I'm sure some water can still get by. Was thinking of drilling a drain hole, but not something I'd love to do. Either way it's not a clean solution.
