Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Dura Ace 7600 Cranks - Torque specs?

Does anyone know how how many in-lbs are recommended for the square tapered 7600-series Dura Ace cranks? I bought an unused set w/o a manual and I can only find info for the 7710's on Shimano's website... thanks in advance.

do not listen to this (see here...Crank arms and torque) I don't know how much torque is needed for your specific cranks, but it might be stamped on the cranks themselves or if that fails, look up the specs on the website.

30-35" lbs is standard for square taper cranks.
