    Crank Help

    Hi, i have a SR Suntour standard crankset, it is always coming loose i tighten it to the point that the wrench is going to break and 10mins later its loose and wobbling about? is this a problem with the whole set? or just the BB?

    You're probably having a more common problem with the Trek 4300's crankset. Take it to the LBS you bought it from and get them to service it under Trek's warranty.

    Yup at the old Trek shop I was at whenever we built a bike with the SR cranks, first step before anything else was to Loctite the bolt... they ALL come loose.

    Do you guys use Loctite on all your parts or only the SR crank?

    Mostly the SR crank... grease for most other stuff.
