I need some advice on this please!
I am having some repeted trouble with my sex bolts loosining up on my Moment :madmax: I just had to have all the bearings replaced in my swingarm and rocker. Ellsworth told me not to use locktite on the sex bolts, they should not have to have it. I also checked the orings and they were fine. The reason they were backing out the first time was due to the bad bearings. I thought the problem was fixed. Should I just pull them apart and locktite them?

My Moment drive side rear chainstay pivot bolt fell out on the trail. Fortunately I was able to find it and continue the ride. I put blue Loctite on this bolt, both sides. I don't forsee any problems with this.

I had this issue on my older Isis when it was new. I just continued to keep tightening it when it came loose. Eventually, it just stopped backing out. Same issue with the shock mount bolts on the new Moment. Everything is good now. I didn't need Loctite, but I can't see why you shouldn't use it. I'd say that's up to you.
