    Where can i buy a 15mm wrench in NYC?

    Having a hell of a time getting my hands on a plain old 15mm wrench. All the hardware stores I've hit have sets that only go up to 14mm (and i don't really want to buy a set if i can avoid it). Anyone know someplace i can get one for sure?

    Okay, we meet at Niagara Falls. I'll be on the Maiden of the Mist w/ a pink Campy cycling hat on, you spot me with one of the tourist ground-mounted telescopes. Upon spotting me send up a pink signal flare, at which point I'll launch the wrench over to your side of the falls with one of those massive two-person slingshots.

    This ****'s foolproof.

    What about that "Abe's 24-hour House of Wrenches" on 37th?

    any SEARs in NYC? They sell individuals.

    Worse case, get a small crescent.

    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    Eddie. I got my 15mm wrench at this little hardware store behind our tattoo shop on canal street.

    they are all curved wrenches and you get like 5 different ones for less then 10 bucks.
    I love em..

    Either of the shops on Canal across from OLD Pearl Paint (just south of B way) & next to the big plastics store should have them too.

    re: thechamp: yeah, there are pawn shops in NYC and everyone of them have old track bikes for real cheap.... they just hide them until the NYU kids go home

    Get a pedal wrench! They're 15mm, and you can use it on your pedals too.

    You can also get a Surly Jethro Tule. It has 15mm wrench on one side, and beer opener on the other side. The handle is small and curves away from the tire. It's cool, but a bit pricy (like $25)

    I bought mine at 9th ave between 47 and 48 street. Try to get one with a closed end so there's less chance of stripping the nut.

    Pedro's pedal wrench, like $7.

    Or go to Sears, you can get individual wrenches, whoohoo Craftsman.
