    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.

    I believe they are 10x1mm threading... but I could be wrong.

    Major drawbacks to wingnuts include your **** getting stolen really easily.

    What would be the pros of using them?

    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.
