Hello.

What do you guys think of the one I have for 2Nm on bar and 3Nm for steerer? I will install my Hyperstem today. Will it be accurate enough? :noidea:

I've used it for for years with hyperstem and did not experiance any problems what so ever. So i guess it's close enough to what it needs to be.

mine seems to read a tad low (or get a tad more torque than I set).
Say, set it at 5N.m but it click at 5.5N.m, for example.
But as long as you stay within reasonable torque range. The components are designed with more than enough margin of error to cover that little extra torque.
