A Nice Tire Change Solution

This was posted by Desmofan, and I think it deserves its own thread. I hope this is not considered spam, I am posting this becouse this tool helped me in Baja, and is really a nice and easy way to get past the beadlock prob. that we have w/ our back tires.


I have to go an I will finish posting later

I can't tell what's in the bag. It must be one of those folding camp saws!

Looks expensive though.

You edited your post, so I will edit mine. Is that the mythical helmet cable I see?

Question

looks like youd wrap and attach that wirerope to something on the opposite side of the tire and us it as a leverage point to use the beadbreaker? Otherwise it looks like a garden tool

OK, OK, Here is the rest of the pics.







I think everyone is right on with this. It could be a garden tool, and peace pipe. It also is a bit pricey. (it all depends on what its worth to ya to be able to easily fix a flat out in the bush)

The cable goes through the axle and then back through the spokes to be a leverage point.

Send him an E-mail if your interested mailtoale@cooperoil.com

Does the "use the kickstand of another bike" trick not work on these beasts?

You'll have to E-mail him. I'm not sure and I would hate to quote ya the wrong price.

I got the photos from, Desmofan, so we'll have to see if he wants to chime in.

Personally, I can get the TKC's off with just tire irons, but the Karoo, Baja, & Dessert are imposible due to there stiff side walls. This tool made break'n the bead on these tires a non issue.

I bought one of the bead breakers while at the Ouray rally. Did yours come with the wrench, spoons or did you get those seprate? The one I bought didn't come with them.
