    Torque Wrench?

    For those of you that do your own work on these bikes... do you use a torque wrench? If so, what's the suggested range for a tq wrench? I was thinking about getting a 40-200 lb/in one... would that be adequate for the fasteners found on these bikes?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yo really need two wrenches,one for the small fasteners and one for larger bolts.

    I bought this Park Tool torque wrench for apprx $30, measures from 0-60 in/lbs, 1/4" drive and it comes with an adapter for 3/8" sockets. http://parktool.com/products/detail....13&item=TW%2D1
    Park also has a heavier wrench that measures up to 600"/lbs. http://parktool.com/products/detail....13&item=TW%2D2

    Look at the torque spec sheet that Park provides to get a better idea of the required torque that different mfrs suggest for their components. http://parktool.com/repair/readhowto.asp?id=88

    I printed out the torque spec sheets and had them laminated so I can keep them handy in garage.

    Wow! $30 for a torque wrench? That's amazing... the ones I was looking at were $200 or so. How's the accuracy of the Park tq. wrenches?
