Cyclists Go for Norbar Torque Quality

Norbar’s Sales & Marketing Director Philip Brodey, a cycling enthusiast himself, said that the TT20 is a ‘must have’ wrench for the cyclist.  “Having a torque range from 1 to 20 N·m it covers the majority of safely critical fasteners on the bike.  In fact, just about the only bolts that it will not do are the crank bolts.  Check the manual, but depending on the bike you will need around 40 to 50 N·m for these components. Our suggestion would be to go for a TT150 in addition to the TT20 and you will be able to check your car wheel nuts as well!
