Kevin leave Leinster house alone, let's stake the council officials to the p & t poles. Take to the roads in force and make sure we are heard.

I suggest we hold a collective burning of Jerseys outside Leinster house to mourn the loss of our sport

Production now launched on our jerseys. So we will all be able to dress nicely for events we are not allowed have. Frown

Mr F died like the sport he loved. Like the Phoenix he will arise from the ashes. Ireland..the greatest little dump in the world to get shafted in.

Clocks go forward tonight by one hour. Mr F do set your watch or do you work off another formation.

Howdy boys and girls,

I'm looking to add to my inventory a torque wrench, and am just wondering if any of you might have any recommendations or advice for me?, I've noticed that some can be quite pricey but I've seen a BBB one there for 60quid with half a dozen fittings which looks like it would do the job?

Also I'm looking to get hold of a decent workstand too, so if anyone has any recommendations here or is even selling one I like to hear from ya!

Thanks again folks!

Gav

Hi Gavin,
This is the workstand I have it is quite sturdy. Some on the market are a bit flimsy. The one advantage I found for a workstand is I am more likely to wash and repair the bike and the built in tool tray is handy for holding all the nuts, screws and bolts you have left over after re-assembling your bike!

I went for an expensive torque wrench as entry level models often do not have the durability or reliability of calibration. Like all measuring devices torque wrenches require a system of testing to ensure calibration is within acceptable ranges. However all that said, I only use mine for assessing the torque I have applied by hand tighening. So far I have not reached the max torque settings for each component (cautious bike mechanic!). A torque wrench is an essential tool for a heavy handed mechanic but it also can be used to identify which type you are.

The stand is 89 and the wrench is 149

Hi Gents,

Thanks for the input, Kieran your always a safe bet for the tech info! I agree I would only want it to insure saddle or headset adjustments are torqued correct and the workstand for cleaning mostly too!, and Andreas thanks also, nearly half saved off the price of that torque wrench, I could hardly say no!

Lads,

I see lidl have torque wrench on sale this week - might be worth investigating. Anyone want to volunteer a carbon frame for testing ?! ;-)

With a torque range of 42Nm- 210Nm the first touch will be the last.......
A suitable bike torque range should typically be between 2Nm- 20Nm. Leave the automotive tools to your local grease monkeys. Anyone likely to purchase a wrench like this one probably lists a hammer and chisel amoung their favourite bike tools.Shock

Thanks for the clarification Kieran!
(will never get anyone to volunteer a frame for testing now ;-) )
