Park makes bike ones.

You can get them at sears for standard drive ratchets.

If you've never used one be careful, it is really easy to mega-overtighten things with some of them if you're not used to how they work. The first time I used mine I missed the "click" that indicates when it's reached the desired torque. Because the arm on the torque wrench is 3x as long as a normal ratchet I then proceeded to torque it down ridiculously tightly.

I've heard from one shop owner that they stopped using them because "new" mechanics would screw things up more with the torque wrench than without it.
