Well my freaking crank spindle stripped out. AND my bolts broke. So i need new cranks. And honestly, out of all my problems with bikes, things STRIPPING OUT is the main problem. I have had axles mess up, stems, and all other things. Does anyone else struggle with stripping out threads?

I am gonna get new cranks. If Dolphin texts me, i can get his Subrosa Bitchin' Cranks (any info on these is appreciated, i have checked a few reviews and they seem great).

Text Walker. He called me and said you may be able to borrow bolts or something. Just text him.

I used to have a problem with my stuff stripping. Now I'm good though. the only thing sort of stripped are my crank bolts and they're really not that bad. I may replace them once I get the extra money though!

Chaz used to strip EVERYTHING! Lol remember that?

Usually you will only strip something if the tool isn't the right size or you aren't putting the wrench or allen key all the way in snug.

Step 1. Use the right size tool
Step 2. Use the right sized bolt/nut
Step 3. Use grease
Step 4. If it doesn't feel like it will thread in anymore, QUIT FUCKING TIGHTENING IT.

Use your head and shit wont strip.

Threads dont strip themselves. You did something wrong.

In Max's defense, I have never seen him use the wrong too. I have seem him do some pretty crazy things but he always uses the right tool. And we once used Vick's Vapor rub when he forgot his petroleum jelly! XD

True. Speaking of that, we should get to that. They aren't bad at the moment but I want to tend to them before they are bad because I don't have a spoke wrench.

I used to, I learned not everything needs to be cranked so hard it basically welds it.
