Help me out! HED track rear axle kit problem!
Wow I had almost killed myself because of this part:
I'm using that adapter for make early specizlized trispoke for fixed rear wheel.
But, as you can see, it's just threaded for locking so when I skid bit hard and
it keep gets unscrewed.. Cog and lockring is fixed tight but adapter itself is keep getting
unscrewed and I can't find the way to fix it.
Is there any known solution for this problem?
The axle is not tight enough so it keeps on coming off?
If that's the case, just tighten everything back down until there is no play when you rock your axle back and forth.
Um.. nope, the problem is the adapter, which is made for lock the cog and lockring itself is keep coming off.

My guess is like this: the ex-owner missed some parts to fix the adapter itself. I guess I need a part like lockling fixing cog, something to fix the adapter.
Oh yea, it's a cassette hub so it needs the adapter.
Track racers never skid, well besides him.
The problem is your cog and lock ring are both screwed on the same way so they tighten and loosen together. Normally the lockring is reverse threaded. there is nothing you can do about it on an old specialized wheel. My suggestion is you put a brake on the front and don't skid.
Oh.. thank you for information! I guess my cog and lock ring are okay but the adapter is screwed on the same way with cog and lock ring. That's the problem I can see and I was finding the way to fix the adapter but if you're saying I can't do anything on old specialized wheel.. I'm so depressed
