I also cracked my carbon fiber steerer by over-tightening the stem.
Specialized replaced it for me for only $30.00, since it was still under
the warranty. I bought a torque wrench from Sears Roebuck for $75.00.

The torque settings for the various tubes and attachments are set by the
manufacturer of the bicycle. I attach the documentation that came with
my Specialized Roubaix. Note that the setting for the stem is 75 inch
pounds.

Dear R. Lee,

You can upload here:

http://tinypic.com/

No registration, no picture size reduction, takes big pictures,
accepts jpg, png, bmp, gif, tif, allows a short caption for finding
later if you lose the link.

It doesn't accept multiple uploads, but it's hard to complain about
such a nice free service.

Cheers,

Carl Fogel
