    M8 bolts with a GIANT face

    I'm hoping to locate a set of bolts in M8 thread, similar to the Chris king fun bolts.

    My current Industry 9 rear hub uses a much more flimsy looking bolt that requires a set of washers to mount, and I'd like to get rid of the washers, and get beefier bolts if possible.

    If all fails, I guess I can go to a 10mm through Axle setup

    Not sure what fun bolts look like (too lazy to search), but I got the ones for my Hope Pro2 Trials hub from a local hardware store, strange that in Canada you can't find something similar. I assume you're looking for something similar.

    bolts with integrated washers are called flange bolts

    I like the bolt you are using, but it still uses a washer setup. Regardless, they are beefier than the current bolts that I have.

    This is what fun bolts look like:

    I searched for button head flange bolts, and they all look kinda wimpy as well, and only take a 5mm hex key.

    I wonder if I'll be able to gain any stiffness by getting a through axle with the Hadley 10mm through bolt.

    Another option is to have a machine shop fab up a set of bolts similar to CK fun bolts.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    The Hadley through bolt is what you want if regular getto bolts just won't do.

    I've used both & now use the Hadley system on two bikes. Works great & uses a 6mm key.
    SPD pedals are an absolute menace to the well-being of the world, and ought be banned immediately.

    Yeah, I went for these bolts because the ones that came with the hub from Hope were button head and shallow as hell and wrung out easily. These bolts are nice and deep and work perfectly for me.

    Great source! Which one did you get? I think the biggest bolt is this: Titanium Hex Head
    Flange Bolts

    But it doesn't seem like I can secure it with an allen key.

    got home and checked - for hope hub i ordered Taper Head M10x35 - 1.5 pitch
    could have gone with x40 like original ones, but x35 is a plenty.

    Turned out the bolt was a M10. I picked up a couple of the same bolts and they are actually beefier than the included I9 bolts. I have some epoxy I can use to glue a washer onto the bolt, so it might suffice for the time being.

    These bolts are a bit heavier however, so I might try the ti bolts from the Canadian store for around $20/set shipped.

    Thanks for everyone's help!

    Yeah, the bolts aren't light, but they're solid and I haven't had any issues, bolt head wrung out etc in over 3 years use. I'd also like to get the Ti bolts, but honestly saving weight there doesn't really mean jack, so I'd rather spend money else where to loose weight.

    This is VERY true. However, the rest of my bike are relatively light, and I don't really have much else to improve upon besides getting a carbon frame, but I doubt I'll do that this year

    How big is the allen key on the bolt head for the tapered version? It turns out my wheel also uses M10, but I prob only need 25mm of length at the most

    allen key is 8mm. you'll need longer than 25mm, take also into account a thickness of a washer. my Hope came with serrated washers ~ 2mm thick. But my frame has track ends so those washers are a must there to keep an axle in place. If you have a regular dropouts, you might be ok without them.

    these are the bolts:

    Excellent. 8mm is plenty sturdy

    I9s have a stupid bolt on design. The factory bolts actually bottomed out before the wheel was tight, I had to cut them to make it work.

    I just measured the existing bolts, and they are 22.5mm. So I guess I could go either way. 25 or 20mm.

    Thanks!
