How much should I tighten Shimano chainring bolts? There's a visible crack in one of my chainring bolts (after only ~2500mi) and I'm pretty sure I caused this myself by really torquing them down. I put some of Phil's wood grease all over it beforehand.

I don't have a torque wrench, so please don't respond with anything refering to "newton meters".

If we can't give any numbers than all we can say is pretty tight, but not too tight. Apparently you now know what "too tight" is now ;)
