I've got a hub on which two of the holes are badly stripped of thread, mainly down to cheap ti bolts I fear (rather than over tightening).
Which Ti bolts were these? Was the thread malformed to cause this problem?
I'm curious as I'm using cheap Ti blts off ebay - threads are cut - not rolled - and had no prblems to date;
apparently JB weld - two part epoxy filler - is as strong as metal - so the manufctuere's claim -so you owuld be able to retap the thread.
most of the bolt on hubs have small individual tabs for the rotor bolts - do not be tempoeted to fit larger bolt M6 as this may weaken the tab (mavic corssmax are know to split at that point) ; for same reason a helicoil is not a good idea. (if you hub is different to what I describe then ignore me).
