    Torque wrenches.

    Already have a torque wrench but it only goes to 15Nm, looking for something with a much larger range.

    Maybe something like the Park tools TW-2 or TW-6?
    If anyone has some suggestions on something better or is better value let me know!

    Thanks.

    What do you need it for? Beyond 15 and it's kinda just a hard as you can deal.

    Had some bb/crank issues. Wondering if I'm not torquing by cups or cranks properly.

    hmm, take everything out, clean and grease. If it still does it, just take it to a LBS, tak em 5 mins to check the torque.

    Yeah I did that and it's stopped, for now. Would be nice to own a decent torque wrench though anyway.

    Hmc is right in that for crank bb it's very tight therefore you kind of don't need one.

    Kincrome Micrometer 1/2" drive torque wrench. Does 13.60 - 203.50 Nm and only costs around $100. Although I'd consider a torque wrench in that range to be more of an automotive tool than a bike tool. (I've got the 1/4" drive version, which does 2.0 - 24.0 Nm. It's great.)

    Don't bother with bike-specific torque wrenches, you'll just pay a lot more for a cycling brand name.
    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to ride a bicycle.

    But the point is you need know the low-end torque figures for cycling- ie between 1-10Nm. Most carbon components will have a torque setting below 8Nm.

    You don't need a torque wrench to know that say an Italian threaded BB just needs be tightened bloody hard. 40Nm?

    I'm with Dave S, don't bother with bike specific brands for socket tools. Dave how much did you pay for the 1/4 Kincrome?
