I wouldn't mind getting this. Lots of good reviews, but the only caveat is that it doesn't read torque readings less than 20 ft-lbs.

I use my cordless impact on everything. But only on disassembly.

lol

I've only used one to take off the front sprocket, but I can always justify buying tools.

You'll be better off getting an actual torque wrench. I don't bother with the digital ones. Mine get used once in a long while, and when I do need it, I don't want to worry about dead batteries. The mechanical clickers work just fine, you just have to remember to relax the dial after you're done, so the tension doesn't make the TR take a set.

I've got 1/2, 3/8 and 1/4, but if you have to, 1/2 and 1/4 should cover every torque setting you'll need for bikes.

the Makita brand ones are pretty strong and durable. pricey but well worth it. specially for tight spaces where you can't really turn a ratchet. Just break it off initially with a bar and use the impact to speedup the job. I love using it on fairing bolts lol. just zip zip zip zip.. and it's done. Another lower priced one is Hitachi.
