torque specs

Where can I find torque wrench settings for installing Campy shifter/brake levers on CF handle bars? I would like settings in Nm if possible. Thanks!

Probably better asked in the Bicycle Mechanics area.

Just do them up until they are difficult to move from side to side.

They won't be tight enough to damage the bars and if you have a spill they might fold in instead of exploding.

The Ergopower manual says 10N-m or 7.4 ft-lbs. No mention of carbon vs aluminum.
