    Gear cover screws coming loose

    Hello!

    The screws on my gear cover keep coming loose avec a few weeks of riding. And I don't want to tighten them to much since I already broke the seal on one of them.

    Would loctite be appropriate? What color?

    No clue how to down scale the image, sorry about that!

    Thanks in advance (:

      I would agree, blue.

      Looks like a well used bike. Is that a genuine Lekkie chain ring or one of the knockoffs? Is that wear how the chain rides on the chain ring or just something odd that happened to make it look that way when you were posing things for the photo? IF that is wear and I assume its still performing decent that is good news for those of us that don't have that much use yet that it will still work when its that worn.

        Thanks for your quick replies!

        I'll go with blue then. And no, it's not a Lekkie. I ride in the canadian winter with streets full of calcium and salt. I prefer to buy cheaper parts and change them often. This particular chainring has been riding every day for the last two year.
