In the near couple hundred thousand  km, I've changed our the bearings a few times,  a couple times,  just because,  another time cause the world inspector noted wear,  and this time.  
So I made an amature film of my amature job.
But it's fine and the bike remains awesome

I'm a chump. After watching you tighten those caliper bolts, I thought to myself "nah-ah, you won't catch me NOT using a torque wrench on those", and then promptly stripped a caliper bolt with my torque wrench yesterday (50Nm - wtf?) Went shopping for a helicoil kit today... "this is the way". *sigh*

Oh no... bugger, funny, I bought a torque wrench for the work on the timing chain stuff. But I don't use on much else. The calipers just until they "Feel right"
I did use one on the rotor bolts on the front wheel last week when I fitted some to a second front wheel.

Hope the coil goes in alright.

Oh my, how timely. I took the wheels of GRiSO yesterday and spooned on some new rubber. While taking off the front, I was asking myself, "Self, what are the torque specs for those bolts?"

So, I guess I'll tighten everything up the olde farmer way, except the 4 rear bolts. I'll use that fancy clicky wrench on them.

Use a torque wrench. Your life may depend on it.

Torque specs are in the service manual. Obey.

It will have only stripped because some previous shaved-ape did not stop at 50Nm and gave it a little bit extra.

I'm with Mark - not hard to use a torque wrench and they are cheaper than castings.

If you want to stay primitive in the spirit of some MG engineering - use an old fashioned bending beam torque wrench -
You can re-calibrate them in 10 seconds (but you may have to lie on the floor to read the scale lol)

Torque wrench every time (where possible)....especially on Titanium bicycle with carbon seat post & handlebars....it's hard to 'judge' 5nm accurately
