    Mini preset torque wrench for seatpost?

    I got a new car and will be needing to drop my seat when loading. It is a carbon frame with carbon seat-post. Is there such a thing as a small preset torque hex wrench for something like this? The torque value is between 55-65 in-lbf. Thanks Ron

    You could tighten it to 5nm with a Ritchey Torque Key and add a bit more with another wrench.

    I have pre-set mini torque wrenches (T-handle) in 4, 5 and 6nm. They handle a vast majority of my needs.

    Do you have a brand name or link to where I could buy them? Thanks, Ron

    I use the Ritchey torque key for my CF seatpost and have never had a slippage problem. I use CF assembly paste too.
