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)

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.

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.
