Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
They are to be used on a 1980's Dawes Lightning.
Do you know what the hub is ? It is likely that the hub will be a Shimano, as my Tourer is a Dawes and similar vintage.
If so you need the M10 variant.
If the hub is a non branded part, the quickest and cheapest option is try a normal nut from any half decent hardware store. You need only buy the 3/8" nut.
This is because metric bike axles are M10x1.0mm (ie 1mm pitch for the thread). A normal M10 nut will not work as it is M10x1.5mm (ie 1.5mm pitch).
So get a 3/8" nut and try. If this is not easy get, the other option is to get an M10x1.0mm but here you will need to go to a specialist fastening store, typically on an industrial estate or on-line. Anyway the nut will cost just a few pence.
Anyway, once you know which one fits you can splash out on the Tacx ones which are expensive !
I can see somone has already asked if these work for fixed/track dropouts and you've said that they don't.
Do you do any nuts/extensions that will enable a track bike to fit a tacx trainer?
At least they work on my track bike.
I purchased a pair and they DO work on a track bike when fitted onto a Tacx trainer.
It will come down to the hub. If you can establish the make of the hub and say it is Shimano, then the M10 is what you need.
A quick check is just to visit a big DIY store and buy a 3/8" threaded nut. Don't be fooled to get an M10 nut as these will be standard ISO M10 x 1.5mm pitch. Whereas, metric cycle axles are M10 x 1.0mm pitch.
If you can't get the 3/8", get the fine pitched M10x1.0mm on-line or visit a bike shop !
What ever nut you get will be a few pence, and once you know which ones fits (or does not) you will know which Tacx axle nut to buy.
