Hello all, some days ago, somebody (sorry I can't remember who) mentioned the need of a table presenting bike torque values. The following list (along with other FAQs) comes from http://draco.acs.uci.edu/rbfaq/FAQ/index.html

"These torque values are from the Third Hand catalogue. All values are in inch pounds (in lbs); to convert to foot pounds (ft lbs), divide by 12.

Stem binder bolt 100-120 Brake levers to handlebars 75-95 Handlebar binder 145-200 Brake cable binders 55-75 Controls to frame 35-45 Straddle nut (yoke) 50-70 Front shifter to frame 25-45 Brake pads to brake 45-75 Front shifter to cable binder 25-45 Brake dome nut 50-80 Rear shifter to frame 120-145 Crank bolt 250-300 Rear shifter cable binder 25-45 Chainring bolts 100-120 Jockey wheel bolt 25-45 Nutted front hub 180 Seat binder bolt 35-55 Nutted rear hub 300 Caliper brakes to frame 100-120 Water bottle cage 25-35 Cantilever brake to frame 45-60 Fender to frame bolts 50-60 Cantilever brake link wire 35-45 Toe clips to pedals 25-45 Kickstand 60

[Here is another list of torque values from Barnett Bicycle Institute sent in by Richard Ney <rtn@gis.net>. All values are inch pounds.]

I hope it will save some nuts and bolts
