Torques must be taken into account when tightening the screw connections. For this reason, a torque key with a corresponding settings zone is required. If you are not experienced in using torque keys or if you do not own a suitabletorque key, have the screw connections checked by a Carqon dealer. The correct torque of a screw connection depends on the material and the diameter of the screw as well as the material and the construction of the components.
|Screw connection||Torque in Nm|
|Pedal crank (steel/aluminium)||30 – 40|
|Seat(adjustment screw) M6/M8||14 - 20|
|Seat tube clamp||5 - 10|
|Brake and gear lever on the handlebar||3 - 5|
|Handlebar stem with inner clamp (expander bolt shaft stem)||25 - 30|
|Optional luggage carrier (all screw and nuts)||10|
