We recently published a piece on torque where we looked at how torque in the bike industry compares to others. This second instalment in our deep dive into torque sees a discussion on torque and torque wrenches with some of the biggest tool manufacturers in the bike industry. 

We sent some questions to some prominent tool manufacturers to get a take directly from the horse's mouth. The internet is full of tips and advice on all things bike maintenance but not all of it can be relied upon. For the most part, going direct to the manufacturer whether it be for tools or components will usually provide you with the best advice.
