oh i see now how often do i need to do that?

thanks

So it never comes loose. Check it at least once a week! You dont have to take the crank off to tighten/check it.

I use a flat head screw driver with mine. Just jam it in and push it round (anti-clockwise) till its tight.

Buy an SL or TR ;)

EDIT: For a useful answer - the Tensile pawls seem to round off a bit when the freewheel starts skipping every now and again, which exacerbates the problem a bit. Strip it down, clean out any shards of pawl floating about in there and give the pawls a look. Spin the freewheel around with the lockring and one bearing off and see how neatly the pawls click into the ratchet. If they're not really sitting in there very well, it might be worth buying some new pawls to get them digging in properly again.
