About 2 months ago, I bought a pair of Moose tire irons and have used them once. They performed well and are definately worth the money. Before I had them I used to use screwdrivers. They are not the best tool for changing tires as I had put holes in my innertube and soon learned that I was not supposed screwdrivers. :think
I have to cheap generic 13 inch tire irons. I keep saying I need a third one, maybe even one with a handle, but I managed to change my back tire this morning with out TOO much trouble so I guess I don't. I must say, I will never go back to screwdrivers. A real tire iron, of any sort makes a huge difference.
I used Terrycable's 16" Mighty Tire Iron, it's expensive, $30 each, but well made with big handle and doesn't bend at all. Also am using their tire changer, makes the job a lot easier. I was able to change the tire in about 5 minutes. BTW, WD-40 works great on the beads.
Had the pleasure of watching Jeff Fredette give a quick tire changing 101 at DW-01 recently. He's an advocate of small (8-9") levers and using technique versus muscle. It worked perfectly too! He also commented that a little lip ground in an 1/8" from the tip is nice to feel the grip against the rim. Lastly, he said polish them smooth so that they slide off the rim better. Anyone else see this? I miss anything?
Kowa tools the same people who make the T wrenches do rim savers they are in California and have a webb site if you do a search, if you don't have any luck send me a email and I'll lok up the details.
Thats the ones dude
I have used them on street bikes as I think they are really for them but there's no reason why they shouldn't work on MX bikes if you have anodised rims that you don't want scratched.
