    Another place for Loctite. . .

    Having lost some parts for lack of foresight into just what all can rattle off, I'm taking suggestions.

    Most recent loss on my part -- the "handle" part of my pump, which is now simply a threaded rod. My ride today is to retrace my last ride to see if I can find the handle. I'm sure I can find something to fit in the handle's place, but if I had only known, a nickels worth of Loctite and 1 minute of labor would've saved me the aggravation.

    (For those who know Bob Dylan . . . the pump does in fact work, and I do not have reason to believe that Vandals were involved in any way. This however does not obviate the need to chew gum nor the dictum regarding following leaders and watching parking meters.)

    What have you encountered of that needs Loctite that a person might not initially think of?

    Shimano 9spd brake/shifters have a small bolt that screws into the top of the upshift lever that requires very little torque. It always vibrates completely loose and falls out. Red (permanent) or superglue.

    By the way, twenty years of schooling and I'm still on the nightshift sometimes.
