reply from Sugino does not sound right
Anyone else thinks this sounds ridiculously low, even if you ligthly grease the spindle?
Dear Mr. --
Thank you very much for your e-mail.
The torque is 12-16N.m.
However, this torque specification is appropriate
under the condition that the SG75 cranks are used with the NJS parts.
We recommend to grease the BB spindle slightly
to prevent seizing and rust on the spindle.
We also recommend to do maintenance periodically.
