    torque question-- Jamis

    I have '03 Jamis Dakar and am in the process of a suspension overhaul. In the manual it has the specific torques that are required for the different pivots.
    There are measured in "kgf."
    For ex., 70kgf.

    My question : does that mean killogram force meters or kilogram force centimeters or what...?

    Torque is where it's at.

    The Kgf torque rating for a bicycle are always in cm. If your torque wrench is like mine in-lbs, the conversion is Kgf x .87 = in-lbs. See this site for clarification, Jamis bikes are awesome. http://www.parktool.com/repair/readh...d=88:thumbsup: Torque is vital, check the website of every accessory manufacturer and they report a mounting torque spec.
