So from everything I have read here and elsewhere it seems like you can use the M/D bar for all but the skinniest front dual sport tires and dirt bike tires with rim locks. That is, I would expect to be able to change the rear tire on my 640 withOUT using spoons but would likely need spoons for the front. Yes?

Not clear on whether I'd be able to use the Cycle Hill to change the tires on the cages.

I'm going to call No-Mar tomorrow....

I got the Jr Pro a few weeks ago and it was a effortless to break the bead and change the rear on my 990, I used tire irons on the front with the rim clamped in place. I changed a couple of car tires with out any trouble, so far I have no regrets with the Jr Pro.

Anybody changing old spoked street wheels with a Classic? Did you have to buy the tire levers and the other blocks?

I'd like to know this too. I have several old school bikes in the works and a Transalp. I hate working on the garage floor!
Would it be smarter to by a simple stand like this one from Pit Posse?

I have a junior Pro No Mar and have done lots of spoke wheels on it. I use the other accessory blocks to hold the wheels but find I can go faster / easier with spoons on those wheels and just use the changer to secure them.

I bought an Atlas TC211 a few years ago from Greg Smith Equipment. Now it's the TC221.

$995

http://www.gregsmithequipment.com/At...1-Tire-Changer

It is awesome. No regrets whatsoever. I charge my friends $10 a wheel to mount and balance tires for them. The machine has over half paid for itself, just from that. Not even counting how much I've saved on my own tire changes.

I've changed sportbike tires, 21" dirtbike tires. I even changed the tires on my 20" truck wheels.

I looked at No-mar before I got this one and decided it was worth the extra money. Now, 5 years or so later, I still feel the same way.

You can mount a tire changer a the center of a reinforced 4' X 4' piece of plywood if you want to kee it mobile...

That is what I did. Except I took an 8 foot and cut it in half to double it. Then I put 2x4 around the bottom to make a platform so I could lag bolt the Cyclehill changer to it. Rock solid when put caddy corner but still easy about to drag around and or unbolt if needed. After changing about 10 sets of tires it has more than paid for itself.

The auto changers are nice. had a similar Chinese one for about 7 years. Just have to be careful with the mount demount head, those little plastic pieces can tear off, which will tear up a wheel in a heart beat DAMHIK. Had to replace a few parts here and there over years but for the most part it held up pretty good. Biggest gripe is that it just takes up so much room and now that I don't have a shop, a manual one was my only real option because of space restraints.

Well, the nice thing about the Cycle Hill and No-Mar is you can buy the receiver hitch mount. Makes it REAL portable.
