Who makes a good torque wrench for bike related repairs/maintenance?
I have used this cheap $20 Craftsman beam wrench for everything down to a rotor bolt, but it does seriously lack accuracy down in that end of the spectrum. It's good for torque values beyond the 50 ft-lb range, which is where a bottom bracket maxes out. This is the same rebadged wrench that Park sells for $15 more, the main difference being that Park uses a narrower in-lb scale while this Craftsman will need to be converted from ft-lbs.cycljunkie said:Who makes a good torque wrench for bike related repairs/maintenance?
Yeh I'm looking for one of these too, but as you said new they're damn expensive and hard to justify if you're not a working wrnech or shop owner.Speedub.Nate said:Here's a sweet lil S&K dial torque wrench I picked up on eBay after months of searching. I managed to score it for around $35, but retail is close to $200. This covers the 0-150 in-lb range, which is perfect for picking up the slack where the Craftsman wrench begins to fuzz out. Not really a justifiable expense at retail, but at a bargain price something to keep your eyes peeled for.
