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)

replacement locknuts for miche hubs?

i looked around and found nothing. anyone know and OBS where i can order these? don't need to be miche specific.
to avoid confusion (since there seems to be no consensus in the terminology) i am refering to the locknuts that are on the inside of the dropouts next to the hub, NOT the tracknuts that rest on the outside of the dropouts.
sure i could go to an LBS, but they all close by the time i am off work and they'd most likely have to order them anyway.

thanks

If it's a steel frame you can just wrench it down and ride your bike like that until you can get a replacement. I hit up an LBS with the same problem once and was given a washer and a thinner locknut for maybe a buck. Otherwise, I think if you check out Harris Cyclery they might sell them. I think I saw some. It could have been track nuts though.

The locknuts you can find almost anywhere. You just need the proper theading.

On the otherhand, finding shoulder cones for these pista hubs have proved to be quite a problem.

Even miche doesn't carry them.. for the public.

looks like they're out of the single locknuts. i did find these:

front

rear

better call harris to make sure that it's the right diameter and thread for a track hub.
