Ja 26 sounded wrong to me at the time, but Kaboef being an accountant and all I was too lazy to go and check.

Accountants have a habit of deducting a settlement percentage because they were born tight and like putting pressure on things.
Perhaps he uses a large log or rock (these lie around for free mind) to whack that 26 spanner on?
If so then remember to never trust an accountant again Jon!

I am an accountant.


What size you do WANT the nut to be?

Just bear in mind that the front and rear wheel nuts are not the same, depending on which year model you have.  My 2016 XCW has 27 rear and 17 front.

Sorry not a 500 I know but ja, just being cute about the 27 but because I have had to use that tyre spoon combo, don't tighten the back axle nut as stated in the 525 manual to some 80Nm with a moersa torque wrench as it will be a swine to unfasten and you risk breaking the chain adjuster block. I know this.

I spend a few hours this week-end "on" the 501, of which a few of these were on tarred road to get to the nice spots..

I need a softer & broader seat. ( Punt!)

What brands are available in SA or should I buy online?
thanks for your reply - I trust it must be here somewhere in the +100 pages...
