Axle nut 1 x 10 impossible to find? (Argentina, South America)
#1
Dear readers.

I´m cycling around the world with my t -400 vsf fahrrad manufaktur rohloff cycle. unfortunately, during my flight from Kuala Lumpur to Buenos Aires, I lost one of the axle nuts, which keeps the rear wheel attached.
Here in Buenos aires they said to me, that this nut size is not available in Argentina. they measured 13/32 for the bolt, and my friend from germany said that the nut is standard 1 x 10 size.
First of all, i would like to know if this nut size can be found in Argentina or any other south american country. I would also like to know, if this nut is very typical and common in bicycles elsewhere.

Thank you for help, my tour is now in ice before I get a new nut.

Hey,

I found the nut in a fourth shop. So it was possible. But just to advice you, this 10 x 1mm nut is not common!!!!!!

Sorry did not get a reply to you, but glad you found it. Many sizes are indeed very uncommon.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

10 x 1 nuts are common at industrial supply stores. It is a very common size for attaching casters to commercial carts. When looking for hardware, also check sources besides bicycle shops.
