Rear axle nut size?
on: July 06, 2015, 02:38:10 AM
I need to pick up some tools specifically for this bike, a higher quality set of Torq bits and what ever size is required for that rear axle nut? If you know the size please toss it up as I need to get some items ordered tonight. Thought I had an impact socket set big enough and the largest is not even close. Guessing it has to be around 34 mm?

Awesome, thanks!!

It looked like it comparing it to my largest socket currently, a 28mm impact socket. Time to order up some tools  :152:

34mm is correct.  I got an impact socket from Halfords.  Cost about £8.
