Grease or Locktite on Cog Threads?(2 posts)

Grease or Locktite on Cog Threads?toonces
Jan 29, 2003 8:19 PM
I have a few cogs (16t, 18t, 19t, 20t) that I plan on trying out and eventually using full time. I'm wondering if grease is OK for the threads or should I go with Loctite. I've read that the smaller cogs should be loctited, but haven't really heard anything about larger cogs like I have. Any info is appreciated.

Grease or clean if you are using a track hub with a lock ring. Loctite if you are using a threaded road hub with no lock ring and plan on putting any serious back pressure into the pedals to stop the bike.
