Has anyone had one before...the one on my Kaboom has been run using a 6mm bolt-up skewer but it really should have fun bolts like a modern Hope or Chris King SS hub.
Anyone happen to know the bolt size and pitch?

If you know what diameter the bolt is, it might be worth getting a couple of each pitch (thread) from here; http://www.margnor-online.co.uk/sockets ... _style=196

They're cheap enough!

Thanks Nick...by chance I just ordered a fine pitch M8x25mm to test...your linky only seems to have coarse pitch, but thanks

Only coarse pitch? :shock:
Yup, you're right; socket heads in 1.25mm pitch, hex heads in 1.0 and 1.25.
