    Never got my head round this M8, M10 etc naming lark for bolts and nuts.

    I need to replace some rather rounded thread-locked nuts on my bike, a 10mm spanner fits them. What do I need to ask for please?

    As TJ says 10mm spanner head will be a 6mm thread. If its the nuts that you are after and there is a plastic insert at the top of the nut to lock the thread you will need a M6 Ni-Lock nut.
