Which tool? Does it have its own page? Doesn't appear to be the same layout as your original post suggests on the website.

Never saw Tool 1 or Tyre Tool 2 before I noticed this post. AWESOME!

Tire tools for everyone!!! Very well built and is gonna drive me to dismount a tire just to see how well it works.

OK...it does work, but is not the magic that it appears in the other video.

First thing is that without the proper adapter, it will not push a 21" tire far away from center to allow for it to slide into the wheel easily (on a 2009 KTM 990adv) (a few more teeth and an extra 1/2" of rack length would solve all that) without the proper adapter, I used a rubber hose as a spacer, so maybe the fact that it compressed a bit made the situation worse than someone using a metal adapter.

Next is the fact that in addition to really gripping the bead pretty well with the ridges on the end of the pushing rod, it actually cut the bead in a few places by compressing it against the side of the rim. (this will make more sense when you mount your first tire). Granted, I was doing a worse case scenario without much lube and it was gripping the side of the rim rather than sliding across it. Near the end of the last bead install, I also realized that the bites I was taking were actually too small and it worked better to take big bites and just let it do it's thing.

I felt like a 14 year old kid doing it the first time and know that with a bit more practice it will become alot easier.
