Default May be wrong, but still say loctite


Eh, I find that some loctite on there, even just once is worth it. after you break it loose and run the bolt back in, usually holds better than the bolts which never had any. Also, this person in question is likely not changing wheels out frequently like yourself. I'm sure by now you have developed a sense of how much torque is enough, where a newer skater may not.


Been all over the place. Went to Indiana the weekend of Feb 14th. Still haven't been to Mass. Did you ever go to EWNB?(Eight wheels no brakes) what rink is the skate you speak of ? What day and time? Will need info to plan for it sometime.

Next out of town trip (well up north that is) will be to Steel City Shuffle Skate here in a few months. The host rink is Neville Roller Drome. Probably my favorite rink ever. Love that place. Lots of good groups on facebook and easier to manage on the fly than skatelog. Really tho the FB group "Skate Addiction" is the best resource for anything skate related. Tons of knowledgable cats on there.

Info for that skate event:
