Nuts & Bolts For Your Bikes

Even the smooth running bikes vibrate.  All bikes have high stresses in some places while relatively low stresses in others.  A few mistakes that novice bike mechanics and builders make is to not fully understand which fastener is the right one for the application or to assemble a part and not use the appropriate lock washers or thread lock.  I've been guilty of all the above.

This page will continue to grow as I find new resources...   Enjoy!
