cog welding with rust
Maybe kind of a dumb question, but I'm the worst for maintenance, and I can't see myself taking off the cog/lockring every once in a while in the winter to regrease it to avoid weldage. I'm putting another on now, and not even wanting to consider the state of the lockring and cog after just a few weeks of regular salting and wetting. rusty steel cog, salt/alu reactions on the hub threads, hmm.
You all in the salty wetter snowy areas, can I get away with just leaving it on there all winter and still get it off in the spring? the threads were greased to the wazoo when installed, and while I can't imagine much can actually get in between threads there, it seems that much can't come out either.
Then again, salt has an amazing way of finding its way into everything.
