Howdy! I'm gaving a similar problem to Cathwood so have joined in.

I got a 24" with 90mm cranks that I commute on and the left crank keeps coming loose/off.

I put it on with a torque wrench and tightened it to 60lb/ft and it still comes loose!

I think its maybe cos the cranks are so wee, they'll be taking loads of pressure.

Had to stop at bikeshop on way to work yesterday to tighten it so's I could get to work on time, and then I had to walk home cos it was loose again!

Bikeshop recommended locktite.

I'm gonna try grease on the crank arms first, cos I'v got grease!

If that don't work I'll invest in some locktite.
