    take the pipe down to a plumbers merchants and match the size. buy a strait through compression fitting and use the nut and olive off it it will be a bsp thread;) standard fitting

    Careful - I got caught out by doing that - B&Q sell compression joints with metric nuts on them!

    Metric nuts are Out There - they could strike ay any time, any place; be afraid, very afraid.

    Thats more than likely a 1/4 bsp nut, you could also try a dealer for british bike parts.
