    Chainring Bolt Installation

    My heart tells me to use blue Loc-tite. Should I listen to my heart?

    It wouldn't hurt to use blue, (242 I think), loctite though. I lost a chainring bolt in Colorado last summer. When I replaced it, I noticed another one loose. I put 242 on them all. Can't hurt anything.

    Use grease. Been doing that for years with no problems. Lube is your friend.
