Referring to your post about maintenance I admit I can get lax, but I'm pretty sure you're right and this wasn't loose. It was only on there for about a month and I used loctite! I'm getting the general sense it's the stress related to length of bolt and I'm not sure harder bolts are the long term answer. Then again, it's almost spring and I'm more than ready to get off this studded tire bike
