bead breaker tool

I've heard on one of these posts at ADV about a bead breaker tool but I cannot find any info on it. Any help would be appreciated.

Never used the aerostich tool, but I regularly use the one that I made out of scrap wood in my garage. Definitely more leverage than the 'stich version. Here's a link to the entire DIY tire change:

Cheap, portable, use the weight of your body to break the bead, no leverage needed.

Thats a clever tool. However, the OP is looking for something he can carry on his bike on a trip.

There are plenty of gizmo's available but have found only one thing that will break any bead with ease (coupled with a piece of flat timber under the foot)

I like that simplicity, but at least with my scrawny 175lbs, there is no way my weight will break a low profile sport tire bead. I tried putting the leg of a work bench on a tire sidewall once and standing/jumping on the bench. No go. I think the wider the wheel and lower the profile, the harder it's going to be.

OK. I like it. Where do I get one? Who makes it?

If you have a center stand and side stand on your bike, you got a bead breaker right there. Just tip the bike onto its left side so that it's balancing on the one leg if the center stand. Use the foot of the side stand to get right up against the rim and slam the bike down. This procedure takes some coordination and strength, so maybe practice in you driveway with some buddies first.

I did this at least a dozen times on my 950 that had safety beads and were about the toughest bread to pop and it always worked. I tried the clamp method once in my garage, went back to the side stand
