Thinking of investing in a torque wrench but they seem to be available in low torque 5-25nm and high torque 21-105nm.

I dont want to buy two so am i right in assuming must bike bolts will be in the 5-25nm range?

    5nM is too high for some parts

    sealey stw1012 is good for bikes, 2-24nM, comes with case and calibration certificate

    big stuff like cassette lockrings etc., just use a spanner and tighten to nnnggh. rather than UNGGGGH
