My bike (trek remedy 66) has a problem with the bolt that holds the rear swing arm to the frame. It seems ever moderatly long ride it comes loose and i have to tighten it all the time. some times it gets so loose i can feel the whole rear end swinging left and right. it never used to have this problem. i have now had it for 1 year. it it because there is dirt in it so it cant be fully tightend?

Yeah Loctite threadlocker would be a great place to start. You can get it from any good hardware shop, it's basically a mild adhesive which glues a bolt in place, but it's not so strong that you can't remove it again.
Definitely a must have for a bike owner, I threadlock anything which doesn't get regularly adjusted.
