Hey guys I remember seeing a three pronged star nut somewhere, either here or on weightweenies but couldn't find it in a search. I am building up a bike and want to run my front brake line down the steerer tube but dont' want to run with out a star nut.

any idea where to get one or who makes one?

Don't think it will work with the star nut in place.

Might be a good idea to post this on the DJ/Urban forum.

I vaguely remember something in a magazine to do this but can't remember what it was.

well I found the star nut, thinks it made by Extralite. the problem with everyother pring top and bottom is that I need to be able to run my brake line down the steer tube. I left an extra 8mm or so up top and threaded it to use a threaded headset preload ring above the stem but the line just flops around too much.
