A bike mechanics must have!

PostedFebruary 16, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
Got a decent bike and doing repairs yourself? dont without one of these
its so easy to get torque settings wrong and strip threads crush part, all in cost you money. Take the bike to a bike repair shop if you dont want to buy one. However at the prices Evans can do these tools they can be affordable, i searched everywhere and they still beat the nearest price. Excellent service aswell.

Perfect for those "how tight should this be" momen

PostedJanuary 31, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
This wrench does exactly what it says on the tin. I bought it for ensuring that the likes of handlebar bolts were tightened down to the recommended torque. I was not surprised to find that most of the bolts I checked had been overtightened previously by cycle mechanics. A one-off purchase, this should last me out, and no more worries about stripped bolts and threads, or cracked components.

Vital Tool

PostedDecember 30, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
If you are going to work on your own bike, there is only one sensible way to tighen a nut/bolt to the manufacturers specification - use a torque wrench.
As with all Park tools this wrench feels solid and built to last, albeit at a price premium. It is small and efficient.
Setting the required torque is done by turing the dial at the end of the unit and then it is simply a matter of tightening the bolt or whatever until the handle 'snaps' at the set torque.
The 'snap' is however not loud. It is fine if you are working somewhere quiet, but if its an environmnet that is a bit noisy you will also need to watch the handle for the 'snap' movement.
The unit doesn't come with the necessary bits. However a quick look on Amazon will source a perfectly sound set of these for about £12 - no need to pay the prices that some 'bike specific' manufacturers are asking for these.

Excellent well made product

PostedMarch 28, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
With more & more bikes made from specialist materials, it becomes increasingly important to ensure that they're screwed together in a way that doesn't damage them. This Park Tools torque wrench does exactly that. It has the quality of construction we expect from Park Tools, & it's easy to use. It covers all the settings a cycle mechanic is likely to need, comes in its own small box & easily converts between different drives. It's small enough to carry about, even on a tour if that was what you wanted. It's not cheap, but it should be all the torque wrench you'll ever need, so it's good value. What's not to like?

carbon saver

PostedJuly 7, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
Cons: Expensive
With the explosion of carbon framed bikes on the roads a sensible approach to bolt tightening needs to be adopted. This is just what is needed, its expensive but a replacement frame is an exponential amount greater. Once you get used to not getting the expected 'click, that appears as a break in the body it is wonderful. The difference between what you think 6Nm is and what this tool gives is alarming and surprisingly easily achieved and over done with potential for catastrophic damage.
Overall, this should be the second tool any serious cyclist should buy after a pump if only to retain their sanity. Excellent

Great tool

PostedApril 27, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
Bought this after upgrading to a carbon road bike, and after having to tweak the fit re: sadlle height and stem length/angle, etc. Also have a carbon seatpost of the winter bike, and a carbon bar on the mtb so figured it was worth the investment. Very easy to use, with a reassuringly noticeable click when the correct torque setting is reached. Now I can tweak away without being concerned about damaging frame or components by over tightening, or perhaps even worse risk something coming loose on a descent because I wimped out and didn't tighten it sufficiently! Relatively expensive but built to last. One thing, whilst it comes with an adapter you'll have to get the bits and hex heads separately...
