Wheel Nuts Sizes
#1
Hey there, Recently bought a brand new Weinmann RM19 27"x 1 1/4 Front wheel and can't work out what wheel nuts it needs. I have bought 9mm track nuts (too big) and just bought some 8mm self locking nuts (too small) Very confusing.

Any advise ?

Thanks in advance

Try weinmann website I am sure the specs are there
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

Probably 5/16" English cycle thread, this is almost 8mm but a different thread and used to be the common size on front wheels.

Thanks for that, that would make sense.

Do not know where you are but here in USA I got lots of bike dealers and hardware stores close by. I'd just take the wheel with me and find the right nut.

I have taken my wheels in a few times to get the right parts. :-))
