What the what???
On a ride the other day, I experienced a loud "pop" that I could hear/feel coming from the chainring/bb area. Taking off the chainring bolts, I noticed that instead of grease, there was dried residue from what I assume is a thread locking compound. Is this standard for chainring bolts? When I reinstall the bolts, should I use something like Loc-tite blue or should I grease the threads instead?
