my cranks keep getting loose when i ride every time i ride and usually tighten four times when i got out. i tried fixing my spindle and got rid of spacers so the bolt would go further into the spindle but nothing works. time to get new cranks?

Haha yeah, if you don't have enough spacers, you won't even be able to get them tight...

you could try using loctite on the threads. Should work, but it ain't gonna do shit if your threads are fucked up
