Is this using a 3mm or 4mm hex bolt?

Trying to get a little more info on this - can someone tell me if the bolt takes a 3mm or 4mm hexallen key? Don't want it if it's 3mm, likelihood of it stripping seems higher. Thanks.

Thomson does not use 3mm bolts in their seatposts, this will be a 4mm bolt.

Hassle Free, fast shipping.

Not crazy about this design but I do like the wheels. Experience with Western was hassle free and parts were delivered a full day before they were scheduled to be.

It is a star nut.

Works like a star nut should, not much else to say.

Well made & an super alternative to the star nut on alloy steerer tubes, too.

I find that this compressor/expander plug opens more fine tuning/adjustment possibilities when setting up a headset. This is the only kind of top cap assy. I use on my racing bikes. in my opinion, this kind of part makes the star-nut design obsolete.
