    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.
