got out for a short ride today. It was in the low 40's F. We are expecting LOTS of snow and frigid again so I needed my fix!

Thank you! Yeah, it certainly is nice being only 170 miles from Ensenada. I'll be going back down in March for a couple weeks, and I'll have the Karoo 3's on for that trip. More dirt will be happening for sure

Have fun and be safe my dude!

Make sure you are comfortable with a road side tire change with that tire beforehand. Mine was a PITA thank god I was in my own garage.

Look for a travel bead breaker, I'm buying one ASAP!!

I use a combo of tire irons, some WD-40 and a ratchet handle, even at home. I think I broke the bead on my TKC rear in under two minutes. I push down on my two smaller irons with the ratchet between the tire and irons, and then pry/work the bead down with my larger iron. It usually takes about 1/4 to 1/3 of the way around to break it.
Basically I'm to cheap to buy the $70 alternative

One method I use,even at home in the shed, is to have the bike on the center stand (if you have one of course) and place the wheel under the side stand, pull the bike over so the side stand contacts the tire next to the rim and let the weight of the bike break the bead. Works a treat with little or no sweat involved.

Once you get the tire levers out that will change.

Yeah, I actually saw your post about that... Been following closely. Once I get them on I'm going to practice and play around for sure. I have the motion pro bead breaker, but I think that's the same one you were trying to use at first.

Sometimes the motion pro bead breaker just requires patience and LOTS of back and forth over an 1/8 of tire circumferance. I even got Mitas E07s with them off.

Nah I only had two tire irons and my center stand, wouldnt budge even with soapy water.

I finally popped it with my truck and some 2x4's

Haha, wow... Yeah, that's crazy. When I finally get them mounted (been doing far too much road riding lately), I will report back.
