yeah, tried a 6' long bar that fit over my 2' long torque wrench. i can't get enough clearance to get a good swing on it though, the tail and other bits of the bike get in the way.

This is bad. You should never use your torque wrench to loosen nuts and bolts. Can damage the wrench. Its for tightening.

That being said... a 6' pipe on the end of 2' breaker bar should be enough.
I cracked mine loose with a 3' bar and some hairy american muscle!

^ this. Do not use a torque wrench for breaking. Can possibly damage, most likely will fuck up the calibration...


Hammer + breaker bar can work well as ghetto impact wrenches...

It would be a long haul but if you can ride the bike out to Woodstock I can get you swapped out on Monday.

I'm guessing you don't have air if you don't have a wrench? Maybe you are looking for electric?

Not sure is you are just doing a swap or what but I could help you. I'm near the 66 / 495 interchange.

It is probably time to get it recal'd or replaced. Probably a little off

wrench


plus rk chain breaker and rivet kit


plus rk chain kit
