Pitlock’s “Set03 GA” comes with two skewer lengths of your choice (wheel skewers up to 240mm in length) and locking mechanisms, an M6 bolt with a topcap to secure your fork, and up to two keys.
The wheel skewer uses the legendary Pitlock locking mechanism to ensure that commuter and high-end wheels alike stay on your bike instead of in a thief’s hands.
All Pitlock parts (with exception of the ahead lock) are cold-forged and CNC machined from high-grade stainless steel. The ahead lock uses the same steel for the bolt, but to save weight the topcap is machined in aluminum.
M6 topcap bolt size specifications:
- Full M6 bolt length: 40 mm
- Length without head: 33 mm
- Thread length: 27 mm
- Thread size: M6
- Bolt diameter: 6 mm
- The 240mm “joker” skewers are fully threaded, and will need to be cut to length. Cutting skewers is a fairly common need, and only requires a hacksaw or Dremel tool.
- Each skewer is actually 10MM longer than the length shown. This is to account for the locking mechanism, which requires 10MM of space.
