Anyone... or know of any other vids to share?

Thanks
There is at least one video in those 44 pages.

I dare you to find it..

Seriously though, I looked through the posts on the weekend while guzzling some rum. I didn't see anything..

If this thing was so sweet and with all the advers who bought them, I figured youtube would be full of vids. A couple good vids on the net could sell thousands of these things. I could be a buyer as well, but I won't be until proof. I need to put new rubber on when the snow melts which is soon. Guess I'll buy elsewhere.

Post 344 is kentnothstine changing his first tire, a 21". But seriously, this tool is a POS, why anyone would spend 10 bucks, let alone 100 amazes me. I've changed 6 tires with it since December and curse it ever time I use it. You def should buy something else. :-)

Ok... nothing against that poster but still no removal shown and another scratched up raw aluminum dirt bike front wheel installing a 90mm soft rubber tire..
Again, no offense, but a pretty sad video to sell a 600 buck tire changer.

As mentioned, I wouldnt mind sending the distributer the necessary funds but this has to be proven... like some sort of sport bike tire change, both wheels, cold, from start to finish... maybe its too much to ask for someone selling tire changers to actually show changing a tire...

perhaps its only for front wheeled off road tires...

I can't speak for the package with the stand, but the tool, which is about a hundred bucks, does a much nicer job than irons when mounting a tire. If you use it correctly, no metal ever touches the rim. It pushes on the bead of the tire until it drops in, easy peasy. I have a regular changer with a mount/demount bar, kinda like a NoMar, but Are's tyre tool actually works better for mounting on Excel rims, and seems easier when there is a tube involved. But you still have to break the bead (not usually a problem on a tube type tire) and get the old tire off ( I use a couple irons with rim protectors - and I'm pretty picky about scratching rims). I think when Kent did that front, it was 40 degrees in his shop and he didn't use any lube. I've mounted 17, 18, 19 and 21" tires with Are's tool - it's much easier than irons (for the mounting) and no way you can pinch a tube.

If Are was over here, and I didn't have to pay the International shipping, I'd be tempted to buy his stand because it looks really cool. I'd love to see one on action (in person).

Are's really into motocross and motards, I doubt he changes a lot of street bike tires. But from what I've seen, it should work great on pretty much anything, but obviously breaking beads on some tubeliss tires can be a bigger job.

To quote my kids - "Are we there yet?"

The big question - is it going to show up before the cords on my rear tire?



thanks again...

Update on shipping - slight setback

Sounds like the order that has been shipped is just tyre tools, no adapters. He said everything else would ship Tuesday. I was hoping to get half of these out the door right away. It looks like the first 40 guys pretty much ordered adapters also.

I'm in no rush. So, if you're standing there with one regular unit, trying to decide if you should ship it to me, or someone with cords showing, send it to cordy rider, and leave me waiting.

I know you have lots on your plate, but please do not double ship...........I have to pay a receiving charge for every parcel.

Cheers
