French crank confusion
I tried to tighten the bolts on a 6 arm chainwheel and managed to break 2 (the second while laughing in dismay at the first
). There are replacements for double
chainwheel sets (just longer) at sheldon's online store, but its for all the little bits and thats $17+shipping, and I'm rather poor right now. I went to a hardware store that had alot of metric bolts, but the .4mm bolts with the standard pitch and .7 pitch would not screw in far enough (an uncommon pitch). Ive searched around some online, but I have no idea what the pitch is thats now pretty futile, at least without knowing the real pitch.
Can anyone tell me what the pitch of these bolts might be, where I might be able to buy more, or where I might be able to buy a complete new set(bolts, nuts, washers) of them for a single
on sb.com, item 25 might provide the bolts that are the right length, and item 64 is for the double chainring.
This bike is actually an old ss raleigh that i bought before I knew much about bikes, I didnt think much of the 6 arm crank at the time.
I'm just tired of intuitively doing the wrong thing with this bike, I've learned alot so far and its cost me money every step of the way...
