Really....205???? So much stuff on this site, not because someone may have seen that before here that they should put that stoopid thing up. Maybe a link to where it was, could show a proper tool test from the ones that have actually used one.

Thanks Mr.Stumpalump !
I think the ratchet just compensates for different size rim diameters. Looks like a very cool tool for the shop.

Putting the tire on is the easy part, does that gizmo work for taking the old tire off?

If it does, I'll order one!

Oh, I'm sure that I could find a way...

It's a slick setup, but you still have to remove the old tire, and it requires a certain range of axle sizes: 20-28mm.

I have one on the way, one of the vendors over on CafeHusky.com did us a favor of organizing a group buy. When I get a chance to use it, I'll comment on how well it works.

I have another set of tires to put on next week. I'll take some pics then. I can say that it will take longer to snap some pics now than to mount a tire....lololol

If this thing had an adapter the same size as the hole through the GS rear end it seems like you could pry off the tire, patch it and put it back on without even having to remove the rear wheel. Just leave the bike on the center stand. The only possible interference would be the exhaust.

Anyone try this on a more stout street tire? The demo video seems to be a fairly soft compound tire.
