Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

stripped lockring thread-

So I put on a new cog today and noticed the lockring thread on the hub is a little messed up.. Maybe from being previously over-tightened? The lockring doesn't feel very secure in the current condition as My current workaround is a little sketchy: I used a little locktite and it held up well enough to get home, but it was a little unnerving knowing the lockring could just come unthreaded and I'd have no means of stopping.

I was hoping there would be a way to remedy this without buying a new hub.. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If the threads are jacked then you need a new hub.
I think you already know that.
