Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

how big should my nuts be??

no, this isn't a thread comparing post-ride testicular diameters. sorry

anyway...in an effort to become car free, i'm trying to 'utilitarianize' myself, getting a few things ready for the switch.

i'm getting a bob trailer for groceries, etc, which will work great on my wifes single speed with quick release bob skewer...BUT so far i have not been able to figure out what size Bob Nutz i need for my formula track hub. according to Bob, they come in these widths: 3/8 x 24, 3/8 x 26, and 10 x 1
However, the reps at bob were not able to tell me which i needed. any suggestions? and yes, they're spaced 130mm, not 120.

ask formula, not bob. those measurements are of the thread pitch of your rear axle. i know shimano's is 10x1, but you should def ask

Formula uses an m10 (10 mm metric) axle, so you need the 10x1

yep; 10 x 1 should fit a Formula rear axle.
