T-Ratchet and T-Torque combine to form a powerful force for good.  Roughly 70% of damage to high end carbon components such as Seatposts, Handlebars and Stems comes when making adjustments without using torque.  The majority of adjustments made without torque occur on the roadside or trailside!  This makes sense, as you might set up your new ride or component at home using your shop torque tool, or a pre-set torque tool, but need to raise/lower you saddle, or adjust the tilt of your bars out on the road..  Too low of a torque and the component will slip which is both unsafe and can cause damage, too high a torque and you can permanently crush the component.  

T-Ratchet and Ti-Torque solve this by providing a highly ergonomic tool with a torque measuring extender that provides real time feedback to the torque you are tightening to.  Simply begin tightening the fastener while watching the scale on the Ti-Torque, it will SHOW YOU IN REALL TIME the Torque being applied!!

The T-Ratchet uses interchangeable magnetic components to convert from screwdriver to ratchet, to ratcheting T-Handle in Seconds, and the Ti-Torque is made from Titanium and Aluminum with Hard Steel contact surfaces allowing it to weight only 30 grams!

Silca T-Ratchet + Ti Torque Kit
This is an excellent travel torque wrench. Very high quality and well thought out.

I understand there are people who will say its overpriced, but you are paying for the quality and portability. It is highly impractical to carry around a small standard torque wrench to micro adjust expensive carbon seat posts and handlebars on carbon bikes.The case is well made, and all the small details add up.

My only complaint is this is version 1.0, the 2nd generation has a larger view of the markings. Nashbar charges the same price as the 2nd Gen, which is currently NOT in stock at Silca. I dont mind the smaller text, but im sure it will come in handy as I get older. If it becomes an issue in the future, I can purchase the 2nd Gen torque part separately.

Is your preference piece together a cheap set that doesn't work as well or try to keep together an amazingly engineered set of tools specifically for carbon bikes on the road?
