Autocorrect gods again prove that they are not interested in bikes.

The autocorrect gods seen determined to lure people into believing I am a bad speller. (I'm kind of the walking dictionary around my house.)

As for the Sugino crank bolts, they are my faves. Nice little bit of bling. I'd buy these but I think I already have a lifetime supply.

Please note that these excellent Sugino crank bolts are of the làrge-than-usual 15mm variety.
They generally require a thinwall socket for installation and removal.

I remember when 15mm was the standard and you needed a super-thin socket to use those 16mm bolts. I guess 14mm is a better size.

At first I was wondering what in the heck you were talking about. And then I saw it... 😂

Now my OCD is killing me. I really want to repost, but I’m going to let it ride.

Autocorrect seems to be one of the most blunderous “high tech” apps of all time. I heard it can be disabled, and if so, I might see if life improves slightly without it.

But c’mon guys, we all know that Sugino crank bolts are absolutely SURGING with strength, and power!

Is that true for all cranksets though?

I can’t be positive without checking, but I wanna say that a standard wall socket fits my TA arms which house 15mm Campy bolts.

I’ve wondered if there were any real engineering advantages one size may have over another to justify the change in trend. Seems that for the application, either size would suffice just as well as the other... But I know little about such things.

The huge breakthrough in my racing came when I went to Sugino bolts. (In fact, I cruised my regular training route first ride and matched my best ever time! Next ride was 2 minutes faster. Yeah, changing out the rest of the bike at the same time might have been a factor. )

I've been able to use some 15mm sockets, but I've had to grind down at least one, so it depends on the socket.

As for the ideal size, well, I've used 14, 15, and 16, and I haven't rounded off any. You have to use a socket wrench, which makes rounding off unlikely. I suppose we could go down to 12 or 13, but it's not necessary, so I suppose 14mm is ideal. It's a good thing extractor threads are a standard size. As engineers say, the great thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from.

Just got 'em today. Did not realize they were chrome. Perfect for the polished cranks. No need for dust caps! Thanks again.

No, thank you... This is good to hear. And I felt like ‘no dust caps’ would be a major perk, aside from the “surging” strength & power that is Enjoy!
