Just pick up this little bad boy to adjust and dial in the fit on my new supersix. This has 2-10NM measurements and includes most/all bits needed for a bike.

I just used it to lower my stem on my steerer fork and realized that 5NM is actually tigher than i thought it'd be.

Anyone else use this? What do u guys use for a torque wrench on your bikes?

Url got shortened, page not found? Anyhow, the potential problem with low-cost torque wrenches is that they may arrive miscalibrated or lose the calibration quickly.

Sorry i fixed the link. This is low cost, cheapest one that actually includes the bits that we all use for a bike in a nice small kit.

Calibration is all thats important in a torque wrench, so i'm wondering others' experience with this one. Got great reviews on amazon, and Fakespot A

I use one.

Cost does not affect TQ calibration, an expensive one is just as likely to be off. This design is less likely to be wrong than a clicker.

More accurate than your clicker

You guys are insane if you just torque all your bolts up to the max spec it says on there in my opinion, way better to just not use a torque wrench and get things just right enough to not slip instead of snapping bolts like the dude above, or like my friend that cracked his steerer because yes 5nm is probably way tighter than the bolts need to be.

Nice deal though lol, there’s a rebranded snap on one too that’s $47 on Amazon that’s pretty nice as well.

actually my stem says 5nm.. so i only torque to 4nm.. but still the Ti screw snapped. i never torque to what the max as what it says on the component. firm believer that less is more. :)
