    Do NOT use loc-tite in that application. You've got a lock ring, thread lock compound is totally redundant and will be a huge pain in the ass later.
    In fact, just as when installing a freewheel, you should use grease, or even better anti-sieze compund.

    what he said again (I use an automotive anti-seize that I also use on spoke threads when building wheels.)
