Anybody used this tool to install a Heidenau K60 in size 150/70-17 yet? My spokes still have blood on them from the last time I changed it.

Would be nice if someone could post pics or a vid of changing one of these with their new tool.

I'm building a new wheel for my XR-R and was planning to do a vid of mounting the tire. But they sent me the wrong spokes so I'm w a i t I n g as usual. Hopefully be able to slap it together this weekend and my tyre tool will lose it's virginity.

So, this tool will work for street and offroad tires? My bikes take 180/55 and 120/55 tires so I'm curious if it would work for them.

Has this thread fallen through the cracks?

As no one has posted in a while I was wondering if there is still an interest in the tool from people who have not posted in the thread, I am still interested in getting one and am just waiting on enough people to order one. Maybe a few people, of the 28,000 views, will take an interest in the tool now that the holidays are over and normal life is now resuming.

Also maybe someone who has the tool could answer the above question for the next possible buyer.

Thanks,
Nic

Yeah, I haven't abandoned the idea of a second group buy. I'm subscribed, I just think with the holidays everybody who might be interested is in a holding pattern. And I know Are is coming to the US in January but I don't know for how long. IIRC we need 20 to get the biggest cost break.

I honestly haven't used mine yet. I'm trying to build a 19" front for my XR but they keep sending me the wrong spokes. I've got the tire sitting there ready to go, just don't have a wheel to put it on. As to whether the tool will work with tubeless street tires / rims, I don't see why not. But everyone I know who has used it has done a tube type off road spoked rim so I don't want to suggest that I do know for sure.

It's a busy time of year, I think after everybody catches up and settles into the groove, there may be more interest. I don't have a dog in the race, but you guys on the waiting list feel free to bump it from time to time and see if any others want to join in.

I've been waiting to hear from some of the guys on how the tool works on the big adv style bikes....also is the tool is suitable for carrying on the bike to fix flats or do you really need to have the tire on a stand etc for it to be effective.

I thought this thing was it's own stand?

The stand is a separate purchase..... as far as I know.

The tool itself is just for mounting tires. The stand on Are's website is pretty cool, but its separate from the tool. A couple guys on the current list are interested in the stand as well, but I haven't even inquired about the price yet. I suspect the stand would require a bigger shipping box - the beauty of just doing the tools is that you can fit quite a few in 1 box and everybody splits the shipping. The International shipping can be the deal breaker in the whole enchilada.

The tool gets its leverage from the rod that slips in thru the hub, and although it would be nice to have it firmly attached to a stand, I do most of my dirt bike tires off the tailgate of the truck, or sitting on the ground if I'm out in the woods. At home i just use the old (or new) tire to set it on. If you're just patching a tube, then you would need to work off of some surface. The tool could easily be carried on the bike while traveling, but you will still need a way to break the bead (kickstand or bead breaker) as well as irons or something to get the tire off the rim. This tool is for mounting the tire only, I'll probably just carry my irons when I travel. But the tool is a lot easier on the rim than irons for the mounting part at least.
