I am looking for a torque wrench with relatively high torque setting for wheel nuts and pedals.
Is this park tool worth it?
Is it much better than this one?
Any recommendations please?
I have this set, which overlap each other and go from 1Nm to 150Nm. You can tell from how grubby the labels are how much use each gets - mainly bicycle stuff and every now and then car stuff.
I’ve been looking, can’t decide which route to go down.
Over 10nm is quite high though. Both are the same so maybe you know that already apologies if so.
The one I use the most frequently is the Silca pocket tool that I think only goes up to 8Nm.
It's always in my pocket when I'm out riding.
+1 for Norbar
What about the beam-type ones? AFAIK Park have discontinued theirs, but I quite like the idea of having one that can't go out of calibration, and they should be cheaper. Are there any still available that cover typical bicycle torque ranges?
there is a Topeak one called Combo Torq
Yeah, I meant a big one for cassette lockrings/BBs etc.
Do you need to buy the bits set separately?
Which drive size is more useful for bikes? 1/4'', 1/2'' or 3/8''. I'm pretty ignorant of these things.
I just got one of those cheap-from-Amazon sets of converters, which mean you can use any random sockets that you might have (I think I've got three different socket sets, of which the Halfords Professional one is the most frequently pulled off the shelf) on the torque wrenches no matter the size of the drive.
1/2” for cassette lockring tools, BB tools
1/4” for everything else
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
