    15Nm max for the rear 8mm shock bolt (through rear triangle), and 8Nm for the front shock 8mm axle.

    The 15 Nm are for the M8 screw on the back, what about the front (M5 or M6)?
    15 Nm for the front one seems a little bit to high?

    What torque for the M8 for the rear dropouts on Rune V2 / Spitfire V2?

    15 Nm ??? Woahh, thatīs a massive Torque. Keith, are you really sure?!?!? Just remembered the old Discussion about Torques back in 2008, when they where as high at first and went down to 7 - 9 Nm at maximum - for everything including Bearing-Bolts and Shock-Bolts ...

    Horst, please tighten them by hand up to the first coming resistance. Thatīs more than enough, as I can tell from the old Wildcard or new Spitfire. 15 Nm must put seriously damage to the Bolt or wrench - seems way to tight for me!

    I did mine to about 5Nm like the upper pivots with just past resistance. Felt about right to me.
    Ride On!

    I did approximately 10 - 12 Nm for the M8, 5 -7 Nm on the front.
    15 Nm seems also too much for me.

    Sorry, I must have been really tired when I wrote that. max 15Nm for the back 8mm shock bolt into RT, 8Nm for front 8mm shock axle... corrected that now. Thanks for questioning!

    man, its an M8 screw... just snug it up and you are good to go...
    don't use an 40cm cantilever, and you can't really go wrong...
