- is this clarke torque wrench ok for bikes?
I use a 6-60 nm 3/8 torque wrench from halfords for the bike and my motorbike, its halfords own brand but apparently they are made by sykes pickavant -which is a well respected brand. I think if you are a member of British Cycling you can get 10% off there as well.Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Not the most precise, those, I’ve got a couple too… Great for wheel nuts, and the other one I use basically as a ratchetable breaker bar. It’ll do the job I reckon, the 55nm will have a fair range of error and it’s in the middle of the bar’s range so should be where it’s most accurate. Wouldn’t trust it at all at the ends.
I think the Halfords one is by Beta- the head is different to their own brand models but the shaft and handle are the same.Posted 4 years ago
need to fit a carbon crank 55NM
I have this wrench already (from days messing around with cars)Posted 4 years agonigelb001Member
Not much on a bike requires 28nm of torque mate, you’ll want a smaller one than that.
K-Force Light carbon cranks do, which is probably what he wants them for (or similar) as he says in his post.
That torque wrench should be fine not terribly accurate but you don’t want to spend on a super-duper wrench just for this one job.Posted 4 years ago
