More water than a village in Botswana? Maybe not. This is what was left after the removal of the crank assembly. I continued the service by using an air compressor and blasting out the remaining water and finally drying with a rag. I regreased the threads of the bb (frame not bearing assy.) with a water proof teflon based grease. Grease the frame bb shell threads, not the actual bottom bracket. This will allow the grease to stay in the frame instead of 'threading the grease off' as you reinstall the Mega bearing assy or standard bottom bracket, whatever you have. The pix above reveals a sliver of thread shaving in the shell via non drive side. A reminant of the initial installation of the bottom bracket from the factory.
Everything is back together and spinning smoothly. Time for winter riding on the Cyclops.
