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)

Bolts for Sugino Messenger/ RD2

I am buying a Messenger chainring today (48t) and just ordered the crankarms and bottom bracket. What type of bolts (size, brand) should I buy to attach the arms to the BB? Any suggestions or links would be greatly helpful. Thanks!

When I installed mine I pulled some bolts with steel washers off an old bike. I'd suggest going to your local co-op or picking up something cheap from a bargain bin at your local bike shop. Hell you could even put something together with parts from the hardware store.

When I bought the RD2 crank arms, they came with the bolts. Most BB's come with them as well. You shouldnt have an issue with this.
