Lads.My new bottom bracket keeps working loose on the drive chain side. Would a drop of threadlock in the bb shell put things right or would do more harm than good-any tips...

    Are you tightening the drive side up with the non-drive side loose and then tightening the non-drive side back up? Also, are your bearings nice and free running? If you can answer yes to both of these then try some threadlock, won't do any harm if it's not masking a problem.

    Edit, sorry I've assumed it's a traditional BB, not a HT2 type in the above. If it's HT2 ignore the loosening off the non-drive bit.
