I cannot see how a wet ride can alter the tyre - if its sealed it sealed and if air is not getting out then water is not getting in - and remember the tyre has a positive pressur...

Re: Aiguille bikepacking kit

Re: drilling drop bars handlebars for di2 ....anyone done it

the only place that would concern me drilling wise is near the clamp and even then one hole would not bother me- its just a wee hole and whilst i am sure an accurate machine could measure how weakened the bars are there the reality id for cycling use it will have no measurable impact

YMMV
