Ok. Be gentle.

Fairly new to MTB scene. Upgraded from a Specialized Rockhopper to a Nukeproof Mega Factory.

Looking at it all and the maintenance etc torque values are pretty much gospel. All my torque wrenches are big and heavy for trucks and motorbikes etc. So I need to get something smaller that starts around 2-4nM. What are your recommendations as there is a huge variety out and I don’t want to buy cheap and pay twice?

Never bothered with a torque wrench until I purchased my carbon mega last year. I bought cheap and got the Ice Toolz Ocarina and I have to say it's been brilliant. As there's so many different torque requirements on the carbon mega with carbon bars, I opted for this as it's compact and ranges from 0-10nm. It's simple but effective. Had no problems with mine.

I use a torque wrench from Effetto Mariposa. It's not cheap but it does work great. The range is from 2nm to 16nm.

I've got one of these too, great for low numbers but I've also got a ParkTool adjustable one (4 to 6) which is absolutely brilliant for all stem bolts, lever controls and seat clamps etc.

I've found the Tekton brand (available from amazon, home despot, etc) to hit a nice sweetspot of quality, price, durability. They offer a 1/4" drive "click" type torque wrench that does ~2-22nm and has served me well.
