A few torque specs please.
on: February 11, 2016, 04:49:40 AM
Hey All. I'm doing some super early prep on the bike getting ready for riding season here in the cold MidWest US. Im pulling my front and rear wheels off to clean them, get the tires changed, and then do a little Plasti Dipping on the spokes as well.

I just need to know the proper torque specs for the rear axel nut, the front axel nut, and the nuts that hold the rear sprocket on the back rim. If I could pull the sprocket, it would make it a lot easier to get in between the spokes with the dipping.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

rear wheel axel nut 88nm/65lbs
front axle nut 54nm/40 lft
front axle pinch bolt 22nm/16lbs


that hold the rear sprocket on the back rim.... sorry not a clue what this is


AAAAH the entire rear wheel sprocket just lifts out with the cush drive no torquing


rear wheel driven sprocket nut quality 5  12mm thread 108nm 80lbs
