Can a Hope top cap and bolt be used with star nut? Or do you have to use the Head Doctor wedge thing?

I think you can use it sans dr, bolt might need swapping, cant remember but I'm sure I've done it in the past.

Works fine with a star nut. The thread is identical.

There is no need to tighten hard, but if you are cack-handed you can strip its thread as it's aluminium.
