    Sugino 75 or RD Owners: Crank Bolt Diameter 3/8 or 5/16??

    Hi everyone,

    Im at the hardware store and like the dumb ass that I am I forgot to bring my bolt (not the chainring bolt, the one that attaches the crank to the bb spindle) with me. Im trying to get a 2 in. bolt to keep my bb tool attached when removing the bb (pro tip seen in many places such as RG)

    anyway, pretty sure its 3/8 but not 100% sure. would anyone happen to know? thanks.

    I think it's M8x1
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    M8 x 1 was spot on. Thanks a lot.

    I just got home and tried it out and it threaded in by hand perfectly. I also got an M8 x 1.25 since it was only $1, and it wouldn't fit.

    Now let us let this thread gently fade into the depths of the BF archives.
