    Ate shi*t

    While changing to a higher gear on sunday at the track, the lockring felt loose and couldn't tighten it enough. So on the way home from work today, had to slow cuz a car decided to slow down in the middle of the street so i slowed down then it suddenly slammed on the brakes. When i went to skid, the lockring slipped and instead of a face plant onto the trunk of the car i decided to veer towards the curb and proceeded to eat sh*t. Didn't get hurt, just ruined my beautiful bartape job.

    What is a way for me to fix the lockring for now? cuz i can't afford a new wheelset now.

    are the lockring threads stripped? if they are you can use jb weld to attach the lockring again, but it'll be a huge pain to get off later.

    yeah if they are stripped and you can't afford a new wheel that is wha I would do. And then when you CAN afford a new wheel, just ditch the broken one.

    if the threads are stripped badly loctite (red is the permanent stuff) won't work.

    i stripped the lockring threads completely off my pos suzue basic hub, and was able to resurrect it by jb-welding the lockring back on.

    after i got a new wheel i was able to get the lockring off by cutting it into a couple of pieces with a dremel, and pulling the pieces off with vice-grips.

    that allowed me to save the cog, and the wheel is now on the girl's bike, set up as ss.
