Default Drying out a drenched Fat

So I basically went swimming w/ my Yo today. I got caught in a massive downpour that lasted for what seemed like 40 min or so. Anyway, I've popped the seatpost and drained any water out of the frame, but wondering if there is anything besides the sealed seat tube that I should take special note of (besides the typical wet bike care). I'm fairly new to this bike and want to treat it well after getting it so soaked!

Thanks to you all for such a great site - I'll post pics of my new ride soon!

Cheers!

Belgium is cycling's world center and it's also the rain capital of Europe. Good for you that you rode your bike in the rain..

There is some stuff w/ moisture absorbing properties. Pepper, rice, silica gel. You can always wrap those things in cloth and stuff within the seat tube but it's probably ok by now.
