Rear Wheel Nut

Anyone know the size of the retaining nut that holds the rear wheel?

The wheel side is a 55mm nut.

NB the nut is slightly bevelled, so a regular 55mm socket is not ideal to undo the nut (it will work though). A dedicated socket that exactly matches the nut should be available from a number of our site sponsors and ebay too.

Andrew...

PS remember that the wheel side is also a "left hand thread"
