    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
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

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