except its way worse if you jump it into a lake because then water can enter into your frame and then it will start corroding the metal and your bike will start to rust then you'll have major problems! just get a old bike to do that stuff... NOT YOUR MAIN BIKE!

The parts would weaken after the corrosion and rustiong starts... Do you have a old bike asywhere around that you could use?

Yes, you'll get a lot of water into the bearings on the bike requiring a teardown to relube everything.

Just go buy and crappy used one instead as a dedicated lake bike.
