My, what a helpful tutorial, Andre; nicely done!

I notice you mentioned the star-fangled nut (SFN) might have to be replaced, depending on circumstance. In that event, I have a small tutorial on how to easily remove an SFN that might aid that task. It is posted here: http://www.thorncyclesforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=3800.0

All the best,

Dan.

The current supplier of n'lock to the public is
https://n-lock.com/
who claims it is a Danish design!
We know better; I spoke to the designer of the n'lock (and of its licensed predecessor, now long off the market) Franklin Niedrich, and bought one of the last few n'locks made before he sold the project on and retired. Julk is another Thorn Forum member who bought his n'lock in Herr Niedrich's time.

Thanks for the current link and sales point to JohnR.

The link to n-lock is corrupted. It should be https://n-lock.com/ . Scaling from one of the photos suggests that the equivalent stem length (centre-centre) is around 80mm.
