    Lockring/Cog: Grease, Anti-Seize, or Lock-tite?

    I have anit sieze on my current set-up and have had decent luck with the stock Kilo components.

    I picked up a new wheelset and will be using a steel Cog and Lockring on a Formula hub.

    Grease, Anti-Seize, or Lock-tite? What works best for you?

    I've never had trouble with grease and a proper tightening.

    Clean threads then grease + long handle wrench + muscle = secure.

    Unless you're this guy:

    Then you blame the hub for failing.

    After I learned how to correctly install with grease only, I did it once and never had a problem since.

    Now if you could only figure out how to keep air in your tires, you'd be all set.

    Greece and mussels.
    If we knew what we were doing, it wouldn't be called research.

    I don't know how to respond, and I just finished watching Cast Away, so I will just cry.

    Therein lies the problem. Grease or anti-seize makes it easier to remove the cog without damaging the hub.
