IRO / Formula Standard High Flange Hub Axles
Anybody know the sizes of the IRO / Formula Standard Hub axles? I plan on replacing the nuts with some wingnuts but can't seem to find any info on the size I should get.
And while we're on the topic, anybody have any experience with wingnuts? wondering if there are any drawbacks to using them.
Thanks in advance.
jack of one or two trades
I believe they are 10x1mm threading... but I could be wrong.

And don't say "easy to get off" because two turns of a 15mm wrench ain't "hard".
They will be going on a single speed Raleigh with Lauterwasser bars and Raleigh heron head cottered crank. I'm going for a 50's clubman look so i guess I want to try wingnuts for the aesthetic value.
