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)

Sugino 75 Crank Bolts

Is it true the Sugino 75s don't come with crank bolts? I bought some used off a guy and noticed later that there were no crank bolts. Could I just use the ones that came with my RDs to fasten the cranks on and then take the bolts off? And then what? Leave the hole there bare? Should I just trust that my Sugino 75 bottom bracket's taper will keep that thing on?

crank bolts usually come with the bb spindle.

leaving it bare isn't a huge issue. to the LBS with you!

wrong and wrong.

actually crank bolts usually come with the cranks.
I have never bought a BB that came with bolts.


Just use the RD bolts. crank bolts are pretty much universal.
and leave them in.
even thinking about removing your crank bolts is ********.

Sometimes, Yep

The $240 Paul cranks didn't come with bolts.

I can't leave them in because the RD bolts go on my other bike.

Just go to your bike shop and get some new bolts! It should cost you all of $3.
