Default Re: How often do you retorq bolts and which ones

uh oh, another loctite controversy...

for the topic at hand, listen to what 2door says about torque.

i "check" mine every now and then. by that, i mean, i take a wrench, and see if anything's loose, without actually tightening anything. i mean, unless something's loose. which there isn't, or hasn't been.

what i pay more attention to, is my headset, my bottom bracket, and my cones on my rear wheel. i'd rather have my exhaust fall off then my back wheel lock up because the bearings fell out.

my opinion on red loctite? it has a weird, sweet smell, and it's sticky, but it doesn't taste like cherries...
