After having built my first board, I took it out on a test run without having applied loctite. This led to several screws coming loose mid ride and getting stuck in the drivetrain. This caused an immediate stop and I was thrown off the board. Causing some pretty minor psyhical injuries, but also “mental injuries” (which I will explain later in the thread). I since then applied loctite to all the bolts. I started off with blue, which did not work so well as the motor mount loosened up all the time. I therefore applied red loctite to everything except the bolts which keep the motor onto the motor mount, as I need to readjust the belt tension from time to time.
So what I meant by mental injuries, is that I have lost all the confidence in my equipment. I am constantly thinking in the back of my head that I could come to a stop any second and again be thrown off the board.
This leads to me not having a good time eskating at all, there is no enjoyment. I would be fine with me falling because of user error, then I would just take it a bit slower and learning my limits as a rider. But the fear of mechanical as even made me think about leaving the diy route and buying a prebuilt, such as a boosted board.
So what can I do to fully ensure that I can trust my equipment? Any of you that has had similar issues?
