    Chainring replacement: lube chainring bolts?

    I am replacing the inner & granny rings on my RF cranks. I cleaned up the chainring bolts as I put it all back together, but I did not lube the threads. Should I have?

    You should use grease, anti-seize, or thread locker on all threaded fasteners. (I would've used grease.)

    I had not completely tightened all the chainring bolts or re-attached the crank to the BB yet, so I guess I will be doing this tonight before I put everything back together...
    Thx.

    I'll third that. I also apply a thin layer of grease on the outside of the peg barrels, where they touch the spider/rings.
