ERGOMO users: Tech questions

Installed according to destructions. Set-up seems ok. Downloads fine.

I have been having trouble with the torquing of the BB cups. The tool is cut well but isn't easily usable by most cycling torque wrenches. What did you use?

Any ideas of how much a cup, out of torque, might affect readings? I was in the process of checking my cups when I loosened the DS cup. The bearings suddenly felt WAY smother. Things seem to be in spec ( with regards to torque) but I have some doubt.

How did you determine the 9 o'clock positioning of the of the DS cups? I used a level and a square. A big PITA. Any ideas about how accurate this really needs to be?

Not sure about the other stuff but tie a string from the fork dropouts and rear dropouts to use as a level line to get the 9 o'clock setting more accurate.
