I am tearing through some chainring bolts lately. I stripped two of the heads when tightening and then when I was installing new ones, the heads just snapped off as I was tightening the new ones down. I don't think that they were defective, I think I just used too much force between the allen wrench and the chainring bolt tool. Which pissed me off even more! I am thinking that I am going to switch to steel and using jb weld.
Is there a better way to keep these things tight and does steel make any noticable difference on how often they work themselves loose?
