    Patrol frame storing water

    I'm not sure if this has been talked about on this forum but in rainy and wet rides my downtube, under the shock outer spacing, it stores water and I'm not sure this being such a good idea. Has anyone had this same issue.? I wouldn't want water to come through the dropper post routing entry and sitting in my bb.

    Pic for you to look at

    Your problem can be fixed by turning your bike upside down for 3 seconds.


    You can drain the bottom bracket by drilling a hole in the bottom of it (if there isn't already one there). The beauty of aluminum.

    You could also put some chia seeds in there and wait...
