Is it OK to use thread lock sealant on pedal threads?
and as someone very rightly pointed out the threads are such that unless you permantly backpedal or fide a fixie backwards it is highly unlikely that they will come offPiemaster said:Bit of grease for me too, and a gentle nip up.
A threadlock should be sort of a gel once the thread is tightened, but there are different strengths of hold. I use the stuff at work but it only goes on screws that are generally subject to vibration or on high speed rotational objects. Don't really want a bolt coming off when rotating at 5000rpm. I doubt your cadence is anywhere near that.
