I'm after a torque wrench which will see me for "beginner maintenance" (nothing too difficult or involved). They all seem quite alot of dosh. Any recommendations?

    Sealey Tools do a couple suitable for bikes, £25 upwards.

    I have a Giant Torque Wrench (£45-ish) primarily because it goes down to 2nm so it's ideal for torquing up carbon bars.

    Thanks AL. Those prices seem more sensible. I've got an aluminium framed bike, no carbon parts. What torque range would you recommend?

    THIS is like mine (bough from here too)

    It was a little dearer that the Sealey I was looking at (£39 delivered iirc) but the torque range was greater, and there's 7 allen sockets included :D
