Bike Bolts Online We make metric security bolts. Our intended use and mission is to help keep components on your bicycle safe from opportunistic thievery. Simply replace the existing Allen bolts with our security bolts. Each set comes with an L- key. The use of these bolts will drastically reduce the chances of a thief making off with your saddle, seat post, stem, handlebars, racks, wheels and other components. Bolt Sizing When measuring a bolt, it’s best to use calipers and a thread checker. You can probably work it out with a metric ruler though. For example, if you were looking at an M8-1.25 x 50mm: The bolt size is M8. You determine this by measuring the diameter of the shaft in mm to come up with the "M8" value. The socket wrench the bolt uses does not determine the bolt size. This is a common mistake. The bolt length is measured from the end of the threads to the bottom of the bolt head. That's the length of the shaft, excluding the head. In the example it is 50mm long. The Thread pitch is the distance between threads measured in millimeters along the length of the bolt. Determining the thread pitch can be difficult without a thread checker tool. The bolts on this sight use the standard thread pitch per size. I’m sure there are some odd balls out there but generally speaking, bicycles and bicycle parts use bolts with these thread pitches. Security Tips 1. Invest in the highest quality lock you can afford. I recommend heavy-duty U-locks and heavy-gauge chains. 2. Always lock your bike to a secure, fixed object. 3. Only lock your bike in a well-lit, well-traveled area. 4. Don't lock up someplace a thief will know you are gone for a while -- yoga, movie theatre, etc 5. If possible, lock your bike indoors. 6. Avoid using quick-release skewers on wheels and seatpost. Replace with security bolts and/or locking skewers. 7. See locking techniques and video below. Info graphics and video from SF Bicycle Coalition.
