I bought my stuff from I needed the 1 piece to 3 piece conversion kit and the wide crank kit. I put the 1 to 3 piece in with thread lock but didn't use it on the ends that snug up the bearings and keep it tight and it kept backing off. This was for a guy I work with. Kept telling him to back them off and clean it and use the blue lock on it but ended up doing it myself. But lesson learned for my bike ☺

Didn't know it was a paint stripper. That's good to keep in mind thank you!
Love to go fast! :-D
