After I replaced the frequently coming undone rear axle in my superstar rear hub with a steel equivalent, I thought I’d put some thread locker on it to stop it coming undone. Now I can’t undo it. It is one of those ones where the non driveside end cap screws on. Basically, have I cocked up by using loctite on a steel thread? Is this a known no-no?
Also, any tips for loosening it? One of my riding buddies has suggested heating it with a hairdryer to melt the loctite a bit. Haven’t tried this yet, but does anyone else have any ideas?
Obviously it is still in the wheel, through the hub. The freehub needs a bit of attention as I need to service it.
