    Butch, Given the age of your bike you probably have a threaded BB versus a press-fit BB. There is a huge difference on those when it comes to wet riding. I know the year you speak of, I don't recall which year it was in particular. Suffice to say it has been the only time I've ridden in the wet where the following day my chain & cassette had rust appearing on them. I believe something was going at South Ridge which did not allow bikes to be stored there this year and as a result the upper dirt lot was where we had to keep them. Normally I stay at the ski dorms and would've kept the r3 there, but those were taken early by the Trek staff. Hence why most of us had wet rides the first day. It had zero to do with proper greasing etc. This past year was my 11th and as every year the tech support is good, but I knew exactly what was going on as soon as I heard the tell-tale knock knock knock by the middle of day 1.

    11 Treks is way up there above the call. Way to go! One of my favorite fun rides and for a good cause. Wish I could do more of them. Yes the old 2006 Specialized Allez Comp has a threaded BB. Didn't know a Press-fit BB would not like the wet ride as much. I did ride through a cooling torrential downpour well into the last half of the Maine Lighthouse Century this last September so the R2 got a good soaking from the only cloud in the sky (of course) for a little less than 4 miles riding up out of the Higgins Beach loop. Would that be enough water to have an effect on the FSA Gossamer bits down there? It was truly torrential for about 15 minutes.
    2015 R2 serious fun (climbing) bike will be upgraded some to become just a hair lighter
    Step 1: Lighter wheels... done! 1342g, down from 2000g
    Step 2: Fabric Line 142mm saddle w/titanium rails

    Butch, that I cannot say. This past Memorial Day if you recall in Southern Maine/ NH it was cold and wet. I had intended to do 115 miles that day, but only got to 75 before the cold and wet got to me. I'm sure that that day along with the downpour at the Trek this year did me in as it were the only days I rode in the wet. At this point I'm just going to take the R3 in and have Gus' in North Hampton NH either replace the bearings or remove the cups and reseat them, etc. As for 11 Treks, I know one of the OG Trekkers who did the first 25 and then called time on his riding participation.
