I was going to head down last sunday, but the website says that it is closed. We took the car down as it was well into the 90's and PA traffic is horrendous on a good day. I mean really, why would you carve a highway into the landscape, straight enough that it stretches to limits of sight and have fuck all for a shoulder and only 2 lanes. Any of the ill mannered, cell phone toting OBLIVIOUS masses have been known to tie up a significant portion of the roads due to volume with a 'minor' fuck up.
And I know it is endemic to the commonwealth (not even a state), I lived there for 5 years. Met some great people who I try to see more often, but hate traveling on one of the worst highway systems in the union.

Rant over

Finally broke down & bought one.
Should of bought one of these 5 years ago when they were $100 cheaper.
What a pleasure to use


Highly Recommend. Opted for Trailer Hitch setup as my floor space is limited.

hrm. that looks like it'll stow away pretty easily. got a linky for it? i'm sure my wonderful life co-pilot will love the idea of me storing additional motorcycle stuff in our newly acquired two bedroom apartment! especially when said second bedroom has been appointed "her office".

edit: is that the NoMar?

Looks like its going on. I have one of these nomar changers with a plywood base I picked up used, and at 20 bucks a tire to mount its paid for itself. And no waiting for a shop on a Sunday ifn I need right now!

Cycle Hill vs. No-Mar Classic

All my wheels are black with red stripes
Those are actually the Panigale wheels.
2 track days, 2300 miles & they're shot
The left side was really worn down........that damn banking @ Pocono

Thanks DockingPilot.......Sure they're easy to find, when you call the manufacturer
Yes Loph917 it is the No-Mar Classic with the trailer hitch mount instead of floor mount. It also will store fairly small.
4 set screws & the upright post comes off & 3 bolts the hitch mount comes off & you're left with the tri-arm base.

I actually was going to buy the Cycle Hill but they were out of them. They have them now. I was worried about time as the Cycle Hill ones were @ the powder coater.
They had the Classic in stock & free shipping
I figured for the extra $100 I would be sure to have it to change the tires before my upcoming track day
For the extra money I figured it has a full lifetime warranty as opposed to 5 years.
The bead breaker is not on the ground & doesn't require shimmng/protecting your wheels.
The rim clamps are designed for a mag type wheels which most of my bikes are.
Another thing was they no longer make the trailer hitch mount for the Cycle Hill. Sure I could have made something, but again I was worried about time.


I've had the opportunity to use both changers now.
THANK YOU DockingPilot!!

Here's a few observations;
Both are GREAT changers
The Bead Breaker is really nice on the Classic


The Cam lock & blocks are quick & hold tight.
The Posi-Clamps on the Cycle Hill are good too, just require a wrench & are better for spoked rims/knobbies.
I will probably be buying a set in near future.

If I was doing only dirt wheels & the occasional mag I would buy the Cycle Hill.

yeah nomar stuff is good stuff. I have a pro changer and have done a set or 2 of tires on them in my day . and as far as customer service goes, its top notch.
good luck with the changer vince, you will enjoy it. the balancer is also a good addition if you don't already have one.

It will go down to 1/10th of a gram
Most stick on weights are 1/4oz. (7 grams) or some are 5 grams.
So with a tire usually anything under 5 grams is good for me. That tire now is .6 grams out of balance on the left & 3.1 grams on the right.

A race crankshaft is a different story........I usually shoot for under a gram on both ends

Anyone interested in seeing an FMX Freestyle Motocross team is welcome to come to this event.

A group called Ride Free Ministries is putting on a free show at our church this Sunday, July 21.

Their first show is at 4:00 PM.
We have a big field and I have no idea what they are going to set up.
Our church is doing an outdoor project with some dirt piles currently so maybe they will be using that somehow.

They are supposed to be doing another show later in the day also.

Here is a YouTube video they put up with them having some fun at what looks like their practice field.

Later on that evening we are having a Concert by Hip Hop Artist Andy Mineo.
You will need tickets for the concert.
$10 in advance or $12 at the door.
(Sorry I will not be there for the Hip Hop !!! (Not my thing !!!)

Link to our calendar with contact information. Click on the 21st.

You can find more information on our website.
Calvary Chapel Vineland
4630 Mays Landing Road
Vineland, NJ 08361

Our services are 8:30, 10:00 & 11:45 if interested in coming out early.

FMX is free. No obligation to go to the concert.

My son just picked up this 2013 CRF250l. He is anxious to get his plates and reg and start riding with me. Breakfast rides, chatterbox, some trips perhaps.
Im more then a little anx about him doing so. Ill keep him on a short leash with it.
But he paid for it and is happy.
