    I was referring to the case of a nutted axle. See my previous post number 19.

    See my previous reply.

    It's possible the threads have been damaged and the lockring won't hold no matter how tight you crank on it. Loctite may help, but failing that, you'd need a new hub.

    OP... I recently went to my co-op intending to put a suicide setup on the freewheel side of my fixed/free hub. The guy in charge said quote "sorry but I can't let you do that here. There's a reason they call it a suicide hub." He added that any skid will put way more force on the cog than you can put with a chainwhip.

    I went home and rotafixed the thing as tight as I could then went for a ride. A few skids confirmed the co-op dude's remarks.

    Basically... if a lockring is not reverse threaded, it's not a lockring. It's just extra threads twisted onto the cog. The Loctite red solution would be the only one I would trust if I'm not running front and rear brakes.
