Looks like brake fluid, smells like brake fluid, must be brake fluid... ??? Anyone else have this happen? Seemed like a weird place to leak, to me.

Looks like I may have to swing by Avid later this week. Bummer.

Rub it all over your top tube and see if the paint sloughs off. DOT will damage the paint, so this is a nice definitive test ;)

You can take the spring-clip ring off the bottom of the speed dial and back it out of the worm-drive engagement and look inside for a lot of moisture (brake fluid). If something is leaking it is at the master cylinder, and it is just showing at the speed dial. I would expect it to come out the bottom, not the top though.

Good luck. Let us know what Avid does (now that it is turning into a multinational behemouth).
