Subject: [CR] Fender Eyelets: What threading?


I attempted to mount a pair of Bluemel's Club Special mudguards today, us ing the wingnuts that came with the stays/other mounting hardware.The frame
   upon which I had hoped to mount the fenders has threaded fender eyelets: G ipiemme dropouts on the fork, Paragon dropouts with brazed-on eyelets in the rear.The wingnuts/screws that came with the Bluemels do not fit the eye lets on the bike and I would like to replace the Bluemels hardware with som ething that'll work.What is the "standard" threading for fender eyelets? W ill I be able to find appropriate screws at a Local Bike Shop? Home Depot? auto parts store? Your spare parts bin? Matthew BowneBrooklyn, New York
