    Nut Confusion

    Hi, I'm looking for a nut to fit my Bianchi fixed hub. The bolt is 3/8" and I believe the thread spacing is 26tpi.

    Is there a metric compatible nut for 3/8" - 26tpi? I want to get the cheapest one I could find online.

    You're really going to buy a nut online? Seriously? Just go to your LBS or hardware store.

    Thanks for your replies but I still need help. I bought a 3/8" - 26TPI nut and it fits my front rim but not my rear rim. Does anyone know what kind of nut I need for the rear?

    We need the equivalent of a Cragslist "Best-Of" Section for threads like these.
