Avoiding water in the tires?

Postby Brucuturdf » August 15th, 2016, 12:33 pm

So I love my Flo wheels, but when I am either riding in the rain or even worse cleaning my bike after riding in the rain, a substantial amount of water works it's way down not just into the carbon faring, but down into the tire. The drain holes work well for the water in the faring, but don't do anything for the water in the tires. I was wondering if anyone knows if the water is coming in through the spoke holes or around the valve stem? I was debating putting some plumber's tape around the valve stem to make a better seal there if it will actually help, but that would only help if the water is coming into the tire through the valve stem and not through the spoke holes. I would like some tips for how others have solved this issue. Thanks so much.
