    Torque spec on Quarq Riken cranks(SRAM)

    The 8mm inner torque spec on the crank says 425 in-lb and the 10mm says 120 in-lb.

    I dont have a 10mm, but I do have an 8mm. Seriously 425 in-lb is A LOT.

    My torque wrench only goes up to like 250 in-lb...

    Thoughts?

    I torqued mine to 35 ft-lb (420 in-lb). I went a little under that at first and had some lateral play, so I loosened it back up (not with the torque wrench) and re-did it. No more play.

    That's about the same torque as other SRAM cranks.
