Skip-stopping on cottered cranks & Quandos!
Just wondering if anyone's had bad luck skip-stopping or skidding with cottered cranks. Put together an old Fuji and I've noticed even after 1-2 miles I've gotta bang & tighten the (new) cotter pins. Wondering if they'll break if torqued into a full skid...
Well, everyone's had bad luck with Quando hubs, but has anyone increased their lifespan with high-test Loctite and/or just given'er when tightening the lockring? Heard about vice-tightening, but I'm afraid of stripping the threads (not that the won't anyway, sooner or later). Any sound advice and/or recommendations on stronger hubs (on the cheap) would be appreciated.
