Searching for a Nut
« on: June 28, 2013, 11:12:31 AM »
Yeah, I know.

This one has me stumped. I need the knurled allen nut that secures the handlebar end to the handle bar. I own a 2011 B5, but I suspect this item is not particular to the model. I have tried Hitchcocks and nField. Any ideas? Thanks, gents.

Take out the bolt from the other bar end and go down to Ace Hardware and match it up.  Shouldn't cost more than 50 cents.  More than likely going to be a metric bolt.  "Ace is the place!"  To save your arse when you're missing nuts and bolts.    ;)

If the hardware store doesn't carry it, check out bolts or fastening hardware in the Yellow Pages.  We have a "Bolt Lady" here who can get pretty much anything.  If she can't I go to McMaster Carr online.

Fasteners is another big name if it's something real odd ball.

I like the way you think, Scottie. Thank you.

Did you find what you needed?  Most REs have nuts on the seat.
