Changed my first front tire on my new No-Mar Classic today.

I was skeptical before I started. Now I can't believe how easy it was. No more struggling with those damn Tourances on my spoked GSA wheels. Easy off, easy on; including checking the instruction video on the laptop a few times it probably took less than 10 minutes from breaking the bead to having the new tire on. So much better than the woodblocks + spoons I had used until now. I'm glad I have those skills in case I need them on the road, but at home I'm using the No-Mar

I go the hitch-mounted version. I thought it might flex too much, but it works just fine. I just need to be careful not too knock the window out of my cap when I move the arm up out of the way
