    Next to the bearing cone, there should be a locking nut which should, once the cone is correctly adjusted, be tightened against it to prevent what you are seeing. It could be dangerous to keep riding with loose cones.

    Helium

    Try Linseed oil, or go with a light strength threadlock(purple)
