steering stem nut
I'm about to replace the Steering stem bearings on my K8 wee,
I've read a few threads on the subject and have fair idea on whats involved,including the need to make or buy a tool for the castelated nuts.
But I wonder why these nuts have to be castelated ?
wouldnt a nut with the correct thread and the same thickness as the original nut be easier to adjust etc ?
