One of the main problems i've always found is that bike bolt torques always fall in between the low-torque and high-torque units, meaning you have to have one of both. Beam ones are good enough for most bike jobs if you're more careful, the great thing about a ratchet one is that you don't have to be careful  1

Halfords do a good one for £50 that goes down to 8Nm, but it's always the really low-toque bolts i'm most worried about!

I have this one, which works for everything on my bike. It has a range from 2-24Nm.

google 'sealey' torque wrenches and you'll find something suitable at that price point. It wont come with bits though.
