Anyone have any tips for getting the cog/lockring on tight? I just slipped mine again and I'm pretty sure it stripped this time. It just seems like I can't get them tight enough. Now I am a big guy(about 220) so I am probably subjecting it to more forces than your average rider.

your size shouldn't be in issue,plenty of super strong track racers use the same set up.

if the threads are still good..first grease the threads..
then you need to torque the gear on tight as possible(use a chain whip then throw it on the bike,stand on it and stomp/torque on the pedals REALLY really hard)
then take it back off and torque the lock ring down HARD as possible.
if your gear came loose someone didn't get it on tight enough..
if you ride on it with any slip you can blow the threads out.

That is how I tightened it before, using the bike, I put the cog on and stood on the pedal to crank it down. My chainwhip need a bigger size chain to fit my cog.

you'll get it on tighter on the bike anyway.make sure you tool fits the lock ring good so you can really torque it..
I forgot to mention you should also repeatedly tighten the lock ring down after the first few rides as the gear will most likely be torqued on more.
both need to tight as possible at all times.

here's one of bikes,the frame/finish is from the 30's
rode it 80 miles in 4:02

it looked better with a old brooks seat on it but they hurt my ***.

Here's my winter bike.


It's a Raleigh XXIX. Single speed 29er with disk brakes - great bomber for riding on rough surfaces or in the slop.

My nice weather fixie is built on a mid 90's carbon fiber Mongoose frame. It's a sneaky nice bike. With the Mongoose brand turning into Target/Walmart junk in the early '00s - this one looks like a $75 bike but rides awesome.



I've since changed out the stem - something a bit less aggressive than this one. She's fast as hell.

New wheels and tires. So much nicer now. All I need now is cooler weather. Screw riding in the 100's
