Exciting questions about sockets
« on: May 15, 2019, 20:44:20 »
Just checked amongst my mediocre selection of sockets, none fit the rear axle so I can’t adjust the chain... (2012 Glee)

What sizes do I need?

Are all the bolts on the Glee metric?

I think it's a 24mm

....yes the bolts are metric.

(Unless you've changed them to Whitworth, B.A., BSP, or Imperial like Rusty has)

None taken.


The nut is indeed 24mm. The hex on the spindle itself is 22mm.
