Crank wont stay tight.
hey i have this problem with my unicycle. i know this is a bike forum but....... anyways the left crank on my unicycle wont stay tight. i'm not sure what the problem is. should i get a lockwasher or use locktight... any help would be helpful
I am not familiar at all with unicycle bottom brackets and cranks. However, most loose cranks are solved by properly torquing the crank bolt to about 30 ft-lb. I would advise against a locking compound.

That said, make sure the cranks are torqued down proper, the 'direct drive' makes it a little bit harder to torque to proper spec... when in doubt, hold the other arm in a vise and give it a good tug...
