I've had the bike drying out since, sans wheels.
Every day, there is a puddle.

I got 10 oz of water out of the wheels.

Now, I think I should take the freehub off.

I gave it a bath. I mean a real bath.
In the bathtub. Filthy pig of a bike.
Of course, then I had to clean the tub.

That's the main thing.

Lack of seat stays is a definite possibility. No seat tube, no seat stays on one, no seat stays, no top tube on the other. I'm sure the UCI had a lot of reasons. Now, if Boardman had shown up with...
