      Give up a call to where you bought it from, this may be a defect, probably can get a replacement part or something.

      Also, if you go withlocktite, get a strong color, that way, it will be in there really tight, but when tacking it off, it may take a while, but it is still possable to get it off.

        I suggest you try turning the seatpost around (180 degrees from the way it's currently facing).

        That ought to do the trick.

                  lubricating cranks

                  Can I use WD40, or Heavy Duty Silicone spray?

                  They seem like they would work fine.

                    WD40 is not a lubricant. It is a cleaner / degreaser... so applying WD40 will effectively remove any lubricant from the crank.

                    Silicone is intended for use with non-metallic surfaces. It won't provide the long term protection you'll need for your cranks.

                    Hit your local bike shop and ask for some metallic anti-sieze. If there's none there, go to your local auto parts store (Kragen, Pep Boys, etc.)... they'll definitely have it there as it's a popular lubricant for brake pistons. It's fairly cheap and very effective for lubricating any metal-to-metal interface. You should take care, however, to avoid getting any anti-sieze on your skin or clothing... it's not a very human-friendly substance.

                      To the rider from Brazil:

                      Did you use red loctite or blue loctite? Because the red loctite is dangerous stuff and its actually called studlock or something which holds threads in almost permanently. The blue stuff is what should have been used.

                      I hope you used the right stuff
