Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Fine, but hideously overpriced
Title pretty much sums it up - it's a perfectly acceptable tool, but costs more than it should.
I'd also mark Park down for making it a smaller size (1/4) than their wrench for higher torques (which is 3/8) since there's no reason they couldn't have made them the same (except that they want to force you to buy two sets of bits...).
Personally, I'd look elsewhere to buy my own (avoiding the "bike tool" markup) as for this money you could get considerably better quality from Norbar (among others)... or you could get similar quality for quite a bit less money from Teng (among others).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Not as simple as it seems
I wanted a torque wrench and after reading reviews decided to go for a good one. BUT I don't recognise the noise that I THINK is telling me I've reached the setting as a 'click'. So until I can find a friendly mechanic who can confirm this it's no use to me 'coz I can't trust it. Conclusion: this Park Tool may be lots of things but idiot-proof it ain't...

Another excellent tool from Park, essential if you do your own maintenance and has the required low settings for modern high tech components.

Excellent piece of kit, solidly made from Park Tools, very accurate, from 0.2Nm other cheaper wrenches start @ 2Nm. I know it's expensive, but if you regulary maintain your bike, it could cost you more in damage from over/under tightening, not to mention other components broken if something fails mid trail. I know I have damaged components totalling more than the price of this wrench. Well worth it.

All torque wrenches should be periodically checked and recalibrated as required. There is no official answer to the recalibration interval, reason being that circumstances of use will vary widely and this will have a direct bearing on how long the torque wrench is likely to stay in calibration. the default period of use between recalibration is 5000 cycles or 12 months. If the torque wrench is subjected to an overload of 25% or more above the nominal maximum, it should then be recalibrated. For many, this might be the ultimate decider on how often your wrenches should be recalibrated (for some, it could be almost every time the wrench is used).
