View Full Version : Campy UT Crankset Question - Torque Wrench Bit?

08-08-2011, 02:03 PM
Quick question on my Campy UT Cranks... (10s)....

Where do you get a straight allen wrench piece to fit on a torque wrench for use with the UT system. My torque wrench sets all have allen wrenches that are less than an inch long... for the UT, the only way for me to tighten the bolt is using my park allen wrench set without a torque wrench (using the long end and guessing how tight it should be, i dont like guessing)...

If anyone knows where to buy one, let me know...hope that description makes sense

Just buy an extension for the drive size you are using.

stupid question, do they just sell those at home depot/lowes? i actually never even thought to look... sheesh, feel pretty stupid now...

Sure they do.
Sears also.
Just make sure to get the drive size correct. 3/8 I would guess. Maybe 1/2

i've got a MACK tools set that looks similar to this, most big name tool mfgs make something similar.

Got my set at home depot, the biggest one they have is long enough and even have kinda handle to torque a little bit more.

Park sells a cycling-specific socket set. It has, among other things, the longer 10mm hex socket. It also has torx bits in various sizes, and the price is fairly reasonable.

Purchase the correct tool for under $30. Can be found anywhere Campy is sold. Fits perfectly.

Plus 1. You can put a regular socket on the end of the tool and use a torque wrench very easily.
