    XX Chainring Bolts - Grease or Loctite?

    i've read all kinds of opinions and was wondering if sram ever came out definitively one way or another and specified what the preferred coating was for xx chainring bolts, grease or loctite. some use grease and said they've never had a bolt back out, but many, many others say you need loctite "just to be sure"

    Loctite blue... If you lube it together, the lube will loosen it in time. Loctite maintains the clamp, load on a critical part no matter what... Prevents galling and corrosion, there are a few benefits

    Cant go wrong with blue loctite though I typically just install all of mine dry.

    I have one set of CR bolts that are prone to loosening so Loctite for them. Everything else is dry and doesnt budge.
