Default Re: Tcams unfortunate event

Got over 150 miles on my adapter and nothing's ever come loose. Took it off last week to go though the bearings on my rear wheel and it was just as tight as when I installed it.
The trick is don't just use the allen wrench to tighten the bolts. I stuck a deep well socket that fit over the wrench on a 12" extension and used it as a "cheater bar" to torque down all the bolts.

The adapter doesn't look that bad, you should be able to just use a tap to clean up the threads.

This brings up a good point, you should always listen to your bike. If you hear something new or out of the ordinary stop and check things out.
