How do you measure a bike nut?
Place the end of a measuring tape on one of the flat sides of the nut’s outer perimeter. Stretch the tape measure across the nut’s diameter to the flat-side directly across from the one your pulling from. If the nut is metric, count the number of lines on the tape measure to find the measurement.
What size are bike frame bolts?
The most common sizes of allen screws for bikes are 4, 5, and 6mm. There’s even a common bike tool that will fit in all three. In my experience, most racks use 5mm screws, but some do use 4 or 6mm screws.
How do I know what size axle I need for my bike?
Measure the straight length of your axle shaft. Do not include the axle head or tapered spacer, if there is one. Axle length is not the same as hub length. A bike with a 12×142 hub standard will have a significantly longer axle since it will have to go through the frame on both sides of the 142mm wide hub.
What diameter is a bicycle axle?
Some axles have integrated cam levers that compress axle elements against the fork leg to lock it in place, while others rely on pinch bolts on the fork leg to secure it. Diameters for front thru axles include 20 mm, 15 mm, 12 mm, and 9 mm. Rear axles typically have diameters of 10 or 12 mm.
Are all bike wheel nuts the same size?
Most modern bikes are M10x1 for the rear and M9x1 for the front. Sometimes better bikes have M10 front axles too.
How do you read a nut size?
How to Read Screw Sizes
- Read the first letter of the size. This the largest diameter: the measurement of the screw on the thread.
- Read the second number.
- Read the third number, generally the one following the “x.”
What size are pannier rack bolts?
They mostly use 6 mm bolts.

What is 12mm thru-axle?
From this specification we know 142mm is the hub width (or frame spacing) and 12mm is the diameter of the axle. Total Thru Axle length from the seat to the end of the threads.
Can you convert QR to thru-axle?
If it’s a front hub and your fork uses a QR, you can buy a new thru-axle hub and an adapter that lets you use a thru-axle hub in a QR fork. About $15 for the adapter. This will give a fractionally better bit of firmness, but primarily, if you change your fork down the road, you can get one with thru-axle.
Is a 29 inch wheel the same as 700C?
29″ (ISO size 622) is actually the same rim diameter as 700C, although most 29″ tires will not fit 700C road rims because they’re too wide. 700C (ISO size 622) is the most commonly used size for modern road bikes.
What is the largest bicycle wheel size?
As the largest standard bike rim size, a 622 mm wheel offers 12% more static weight than a 26-inch wheel, keeping it stable on the road. 5
