Sticky orange rust water is constantly leaking out of the threaded mounting points on the subframe under my seat. Even after a week of riding in no rain, I go for a ride and the back end of my bike will be covered in the stuff!
I tried filling the inside of the hollow rubber caps with grease, hoping the water was just sitting inside of them but I'm guessing the water is sitting somewhere else...
Does anyone know if the trellis frame has drain holes lower down, I can't find any. Very worrying considering the subframe is totally open at each side of the rear light. I don't want to be carrying around a load of water inside my frame!
It's getting all over my indicators and makes the back of the bike look a real mess.
Next I'm going to try finding some rubber to seal the end of the frame and replace the rubber caps with some short screws.
