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.

I'm not so sure about that. If I can squeeze a frame tube, or a fork blade, hard enough to make it give with nothing but my index finger and thumb, I would then think that using the wrong torque value could do that easily. I suggest you use the exact torque settings or risk crushing the carbon fiber enough to weaken it over time, which has been known to cause sudden failure.
