Default Re: Locktite

Jim speaks the truth. The red lable Loctite is a great product but has no place on a motorized bicycle. Once applied it is nearly impossible to remove without using excessive heat which can damage aluminum castings and threads before the Loctite softens. Like Jim, I do not use it, red or blue lable on any fastener on my bikes, never have, never will. Installed correctly with the right torque and care the fasteners, and everything else will remain tight.
