    Lockring question

    Today i got a lockring off a cassette, really its just the cover for the freewheel bearings, but its threaded and is like a lockring. But since im making my fixie with a suicide hub,and this lockring is reverse threaded onto a suicide hub, so if i spin it backwards it tightens. Now if i put my cog on, and then that lockring, i wouldnt need loctite or anything correct? But if i do use loctite can i just use blue loctite? Even tho if i do pedal backwards the lockring will just tighten.



    Thanks in Advance

    Logically this does not seem to make sense. If your hub has threads that all go the same way, then wouldn't this lockring just thread in the same direction as the cog? I would think so. With them threaded in the same direction then what you have just sounds like a regular suicided hub with a bottom bracket lockring. I would use the loctite.

    Please explain how you can reverse thread a lockring on a suicide hub.

    ok....do you guys know on a freewheel there is like a ring that has two little round indentions it for a tool right? know to take that off you have to spin it forward, the one i took off a freewheel mounted directly onto the hub without even touching the freewheel, so the threads on it are reversed, because if you try to put it back you have to spin it backwards. It goes directly onto the hub, not all of them do it. Now i want to use this instead of a lockring because its the same thickness so im guessing its strong enough. Because the threads on the wheel i took it off are regular on the hub, but that lockring for the freewheel has reversed threads so it spins on backwards to tighten. So my i want to know can i u seit? since i f i pedal backwards, it tighens cause its reversed, that is if the cog trys to move.

    Since I responded before, I will respond again. This time what you say, in theory, seems like it should work, but it can't hurt throw on some loctite just in case.

    One question, if this works why wouldn't more people use these lockrings when setting up suicide hubs?

    maybe because more people have other ways of doing it and have money to where i dont. But should blue loctite work? Thanks for actually helping me unlike some people.

    I am no expert by any stretch of the imagination, but if people run suicide hubs with cogs and lockrings that are threaded in the same direction using blue loctite and a brake as a safety, I see no reason why you could not do the same especially given that, as you stated, your lockring threads on the other way.

    And no problem. I have a lot yet to learn, but much of what I know has come from people who answer questions on here.

    Well the red is the safer route, but if your lockring truly threads the other way as you say, then I think blue should be ok. You do plan to run a brake though right?

    Okay. Maybe I am stupid. But how the hell can you spin something that is REVERSE THREADED onto something that is NOT REVERSE THREADED? Unless I am missing something, that's logically impossible.
