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?

....yes the bolts are metric.

None taken.


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