I'm starting to see the need for the stuff, at least for a few things. So far I've used the stuff on the screws on my cleats, and the small screw on my Sidi's that hold down the strap adjusting gizmo (one of those came out once also). Also, on the chain ring screws (the one's that screw the big chain ring to the small chain ring).

What have you used this stuff on?

... pivot bolt on Syntace Space Control levers...
... valve extenders (on top of teflon tape)...
... heel cap on Sidi G3 and G4 shoes...

Never needed it on cleats... and have heard that you have to be careful with the stuff near your Sidi straps as some formulations attack the plastic directly.

Be the bike.

I've not had things loosen, so I don't use itKerry

Others strongly recommend it. Seems to be a philosophical issue as much as a mechanical one.

Flight Deck spoke magnet was rattling just a little bit inside its metallic "cage" and to me it was a major distraction.
A drop of LocTite and it's been silent ever since.
