Short nut question post #1
Hello,

I want to buy a tubular wrench to open the nut that hold the pegs on my Haro F2. But I don't know what dimension to buy, and I can't take my bike to the store. Can somebody tell me what dimensions the nut is? On the website it is written 48h 14mm axle Steel shell. That means that I have to buy a 14 mm tubular wrench? Or how can I find out?

Thank you.

Please be quick :)

It could be a 17mm but more likely a...18 or 19, I'm not sure, I run the smallest nuts I know of. lol. Smaller than most I know.

I mean the website says 14mm, is it possible to have 19mm nuts on 14 mm axles?

Excuse my english

I run 17mm, but some lower end bikes run 19mm. you could measure the nut on the other side and find out.

The nut on the other side looks bigger :|

I also run 17 that's why I was unsure at first.
Edit: Yes, you could essentially have any size nut you wanted as long as the I.D. and thread pitch matched the axle
