    Torque for stem?

    I was wondering if anyone had an idea what the torque setting should be for an aluminum stem with aluminum bars? I just lowered my bars and have no idea what the proper setting should be.
    I wanna ride!

    Snug it, don't smoke it.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.
