I have just installed some 3 piece MRP bones cranks on
my dh bike , on most bolts i use grease to stop them from seizing up.

But on cranks bolt's is it better to loctight?

Would normal Teflon bike grease work the same?

I dont generally but would use a tiny smear of grease.

I have found loctite to be ineffective. I just do em up real tight.
