Its been a while since I have posted anything... but I know this forum is full of priceless information- and right now I need some of that...
I putting together a track bike and purchased some SRAM Omnium cranks and BB. I installed the BB no problem but am having some trouble with the cranks.
I can line everything up just fine, but when I go to tighten my crank arm down to the spindle I am getting about 2mm of play (at least). As per the instructions, I have greased, and re-greased.
However, as I was laying in my bed trying to figure out the problem I realized that it may be my tools. I am using a "multi-tool"; the kind that has maybe 4 hex wrenches, along with a screwdriver, etc. The length of the tools are around 4 inches.
The required torque to tighten the cranks is around 55 Nm (or 155 pounds per inch).
Could it be that my multi-tool wont give me that much torque without feeling like its going to shatter?
I am planning in taking it to a bike shop tomorrow. But would like to know anyone's thoughts on this... as I am losing sleep over it!
