Default Seat tubes and vent holes on a 1990 Wicked

Anybody know when/if Fat started venting their seat tubes?

My 1990 Wicked (that was redone by the factory in mid-1996) appears to have a vent hole in the bottom of the seat tube (and a rubber grommet drain hole on the bottom of the BB shell).

Is it possible they added these when it went back for it's rebuild in 1996? Were the perils of the fully sealed seat tube well known by then?

Maybe I'll borrow the fibre scope and take a closer look. Can't tell if it's sealed or not - sounds like it likely is.

Anyone know anything about the "G-Spot" bottom bracket system? Maybe the drain plug was originally an injection port???
