Looking to buy a Torque Wrench and would like some suggestions.

Digital worth the expense?

Foot pounds or inch pounds?

Thanks!

only if you have lots of other uses for it.
most of the stuff you'd use it for on a bike will be inch lbs... a craftsman/park beam dial works for most stuff. I use a clicker type in ft lbs for BB's & car stuff.

Best bet and cheapest, would be to buy the Beam type. Also, Ideally you need two wrenches on for 0-60 in/lbs and 0-600 in/lbs. Park tools are good for both, but both will cost about ~35 each. What I did was buy the 0-60 in/lbs Park for ~30, then went to sears and bought the Craftsmen 0-25 ft/lbs for ~20. If you do the conversion the Craftsmen becomes a 0-900 in/lbs wrench. So you would loose a little accuracy, but at the higher torques not a problems. Also, on the Park tools website, all torque values are listed both in measurements, were applicalbe.
