- Torque wrench question
What range do you need in a torque wrench for a bike? If you cant get a wrench with a wide enough range for everything, what’s the lowest torque setting you’d generally need?
Lidl have a fairly heavy duty TUV approved torque wrench for £12.99 but I think it only went as low as 20Nm which I suspect may be too high.Posted 9 years agogoldenwonderMember
Depends on the bike, I’ve got one tha goes right down to 2NM, as I needed a really low one for carbon stems etc. as some of those are only 5NM max torque. HT2 LH cranks are 12-15NM etc.Posted 9 years ago
If you only want it for crank bolts & the like that’ll be fine, but if you want it for the smaller things it’s not really much usemostlyharmlessMember
I have a decent torque wrench that I originally got for doing the valves on my motorbike. Too high range for a lot of push bike stuff. Sort of agree with IHN. When I’ve wanted to be careful (anal) about a torque setting in the past I’ve got out a spanner/allen key/socket, measured the length and pulled it with a spring balancePosted 9 years ago
