I've got some stainless steel chainring bolts that won't do up tight on my raceface wide narrow chainring ? Always tightened first on a hope ring but not on this one get semi tight then just spins the back, I've got a tool to try hold it still at the back but can't get enough grip when I turn the bolt
I've got a right annoying clicking noise in 1 st and 2nd biggest cogs out back and I've tried absolutely everything else known to man to cure it
New bb bearings, new frame bearings , new rear mech, wheels are new anyways , pedals are new and no play, seat seatpost fine, qr tight, all bolts torqued , mech hanger cleaned and swapped for a new one blah blah blah at the end of my tether with it now!
But I keep coming back to chainring bolts as I just simply cannot get them to lock up and tighten in place? I know this can cause clicking etc, and although they are not loose by any means they aren't locked into place
Are they just knackered ? Shall I just get some alloy ones? Any recommendations?
