    formula dc52n ss hub. what lockring and axle nuts?

    i bought a wheel dirt cheap with this hub on it, seems to be in good shape but it came sans the cog, lockring and axle nuts. i know the cog is a regular shimano spline so thats not an issue, i just want to make sure i get the right lockring and nuts. anyone know?

    Nuts are ordinary M10.

    Not sure where to get the lock ring (though I own one of these hubs....)
    Ride more!

    thanks, that helps. googling i found that formula track hubs used dura-ace designs with m9 front nuts and m10 rear, but i wasn't sure it related to this kind of hub. now i just have to pin point the lockring.

    Axle nuts depends on if it is quick release or nutted.
    I believe the lockring is usually the same thread as a BSA bottom bracket. Your LBS or co-op should have all kinds of those in junk drawers.

    it is a nutted hub of course, i have QR skewers kicking around so that wouldn't have been a problem. i happen to have had an old BB in my parts bin so i tried out the lockring, sure enough it fit. nice to see them use a standard of sorts, thanks for the tip. my LBS managed to scrounge a few m10 nuts so i am set.

    thanks again.

    sorry, missed this. yes i did, i brought the wheel to my LBS and made sure they fit. i actually didn't confirm whether they were m10x1 or m10x26, but they found the right ones. online searching indicated they would be m10x1 and the nuts look exactly the same as old dura-ace nuts(chrome with a floating washer) which it seems formula decided to use with their hubs.
