yeah i know this is a bit out of place here, but first time using a torque wrench, needing to tighten a nut on my bike.... anyway got the damn thing so tight i'm lifting the back wheel as i'm tighening so i'm pretty sure its gone past the torque setting (88nm) and the wrench isn't slipping, any idea what i'm doing wrong in setting the wrench?

well, you seem to know what you're doing, so I don't think it's set wrong, but I'm not sure what would be wrong with it. Has the wrench been abused at all?

Also, some torque wrenches can be turned 'on' and off, 'on' being when it clicks at the correct torque. Make sure it's on and not off!

^ Torque wrenches usually work both ways, so you can sue them on different threads.
