    Loose RDS dropout jobbies

    Hi there, on my OBED occasionally driveside rds dropout comes loose. This is current helped by loctite but it will still come loose eventually.

    The counterbore in the frame seems a little tight also for the screw head which could be causing some friction during tightening and preventing from getting propper clamp force. Compensating for this by tightening more is probably not the best idea. I did try a 'modified' screw with better clearance but it still came loose.

    Has anyone else seen this?

    My Obed does the same thing, with both sets of dropouts (SS and geared). I've changed bolts on mine, and I'm using thin washers on the bolts which seems to have helped.

    its quite annoying as I love the bike and this niggles at me. Blue loctite seems to do a very good job to be fair.
    Guess its just something to keep an eye on
