Pic attached of the underside of my RM Blizzard...What is the metal circular doofus?? Is it a drainage hole or a grease port for a specific BB? Frame will be off for a coat, so wonder if I should leave it or remove it, if it's for something I don't have the rest to?...

Seeing as it is a RM and Canada has the same sort of weather we do, I would say it is for drainage, some frames over here had them too, but just a guess :? :wink:
