    Light weight rear axle nut wrench

    Anybody have a rear axle nut wrench application for the long distance tour?  The 12 point 36mm socket plus torque wrench works well in the paddock but a little clumsy to pack on the long trip.  The 180Nm torque spec referenced in a previous thread is more than a bit snug and works with a long handle torque wrench or breaker bar.  As such, chain adjust on the fly shouldn’t require a pit crew.

    In the 15,000 mile life of my first chain I only adjusted it twice so I'm hoping on a long tour it should not need doing. I've got a long tour planned (up to 3,000 miles which is long for me) so I guess I'll find out  :155:
    Anything more than two wheels is unnecessary.
