So I’m back into unicycling after what must be an 8-10 year hiatus. Today while riding, I noticed I lost my hub bolt somehow and my crank was barely hanging on. I went back a half mile or so on the trail an couldn’t find anything.
So basically, can someone help me find a replacement. I wish I could find the specs of my ride, but it must be 8 years old and I can’t find anything. It’s a 24" muni. I know the hub is a Kris Holm, as are the cranks. The cranks are labelled R170C and L170C (for left and right I assume). I’ve attached pics of the remaining hub bolt here: http://imgur.com/a/bHnTN
My Muni uses the same bolt and I had problems w/ the axle bolts loosening, so I kept putting them on tighter. Only dwindled to a moderate problem when at the max 65 ft-lbs, w/ red Locktite. A while later, because of so many re-tightenings at such a high tourque, the bolt broke off.
The Machine shop teacher at my Junior College got the remains of the bolt out of the axle for me for free . When putting on the new bolt I realized there was some greese on the axle threads. I cleaned them, torqued the bolt to 45 ft-lbs w/ blue Lcktite and hasn’t loosened again
Make sure you use a thread locker (the blue stuff of the bolt pictured) on the replacement bolt. Otherwise you’ll probably lose it again. The left one is a lot more susceptible due to prevalent wheel rotation.
