Anyone have a Spoke Torque Wrench I could use??
 
Hey,

Does anyone in Charlotte have a spoke torque wrench I could use to tighten the spokes on my Warp 9s?? The cheapest one I found is $99 bucks and if I bought one I highly doubt I would ever use it again.

Thanks for any help

I have a spoke wrench, but it's not a torque wrench. Just tighten them and then "ping" them with the blade of a screwdriver until they all sound the same. No dull thuds or high pitch rings.

Exactly!!!! Old School!! Save your $99 for School......While at it, make sure you spin that wheel freely and make sure it is not wobling which will be an indication of tightening too much of some spokes.....if you do it by sound, you will be OK...make sure they all have the same "Ping"
