I was biking today and fell into a creek, and my bike went down after me and got completely submerged. What sort of work should I do on it?

I'm going to relube the drivetrain of course, and probably regrease the suspension pivot and inside the BB. Is there anything else I need to worry about (i.e. shocks, disc brakes, etc)? The bike is a Cannondale Rush.

Thanks!

a quick fall into water shouldn't hurt the bike. Now, if you left it in there for an hour and a half while you stopped to have lunch, you might have a problem. But if you're worried about it, repack all the bearings with new grease-bb, hubs, suspension pivots, headset, etc. Clean the drivetrain, relube, ride!
