anyone have any suggestions (warnings) about drilling a drain hole in a titanium bottombracket? The directions with my new chorus bottombracket suggested I do it.

And make sure you drill it at the lowest point of the BB. When you tip the bike over to drill the hole it's not obvious where that is so mark it with the wheels on the ground before you start.

What kind of frame is it?
Does it allready have a hole for the cable guide?

You could use that for the drain hole.

It makes sense, on some frames, but like on my IF, that would be silly.
The tubes are sealed... ;)

Personally I dont like the idea of drilling holes in my ti frame.
I would just rather replace the thing with a phil wood when it fails.
