It was certainly nice of Raleigh to include a wrench because all of us who bought Atala and Frejus bikes with those stems had to fend for ourselves. This was not an easy size to obtain. Originally we ordered them from motorcycle parts suppliers! (I kid you not.) At the moment, the 7mm hex wrench in my tool box is a chrome plated Cinelli thing. I have no idea where I bought it. Italy? France? Mel Pinto in Georgetown? Or College Park Bicycles perhaps?
