I was moving some files from my old pc to the new one and came across this page I'd scanned from Bicycling magazine, May 2001. It was my moment of glory, being published (and mis-quoted) nationally. Anyway I noticed another familiar name on the page at the lower left. Sound familiar?
Bicycling Magazine has quoted me on several occasions.Spoke Wrench

That one is probably my least favorite because it's technically incorrect and I wasn't misquoted. It was my error. The actual torque spec is 30 ft/lbs. I feel like the rest of it is accurate enough to give somebody who doesn't have a torque wrench a better idea of how tight to tighten a cassette lockring.
