    sliding dropout Inbred question

    Hey Sliding dropout Inbred owners: On the adjustment screws for the sliding dropout should I use somesort of LocTite? I could easily remove the screws after the wheel was set, so I'm assuming these could come loose and fall out over time.

    By the way, the build up came out nice, I'll post pics later.

    When I got my frame, I asked what bits I ought to slap some Loctite on, and what bits I ought to grease up. Brant said to grease everything up. A bit more tightening might do the trick to keep the screws from moving. They're going to dig into the paintwork, so be prepared for that.

    Just put a little extra torque on them and they should stay in place. You might get a small nut to put on the inside to keep the bolt tight.
