I get the feeling that the meat he's working with is fairly compliant too. But even still...that was pretty slick.

The funny thing is that while watching that vid some 3000 foreign words pass through my head...but he didn't actually have to say a damn thing. want.

118 euros = 153.1640 US dollars

Anyone know how to do a group buy? 25% off is about $116.

I think I still have his email, but he never got back to me when I said I wanted to buy one. I could try him again if anyone else is interested.

PMR

*** actually I already deleted it, but I had just contacted him thru the website.***

Still in the wait and see mode, but If the feedback from the other group buy confirms the effectiveness of the tool, I'm good for a group purchase.

We'd need 20 orders to get the 25%

Love to hear how it works on your XC wheels.

When watching any tyre changing trick/tool on the interwebs three things always stick in my mind:
1. This guy is a professional.
2. There is absolutely no way they are using a really hard to change tyre for their demo and it hasn't been sat in a freezing cold garage for two weeks prior to this video.
3. They could have (and if they're clever, will have) filmed 100 takes and used the best one, where it went on first time, with the least hassle for the advert.

Not saying I won't drink this particular Coolaid if I see one being used in the flesh/hear enough good reviews here, just saying I'm always skeptical of miracle tyre changers. I know that I have changed tyres with nothing other than spoons in less than 5 minutes some days and then others, I've struggled for well over an hour. I have no idea why, everyone always bangs on about how getting a good brake bleed is inconsistent. Not for me: after doing it the first time, it has always been a piece of piss for me. Get my in front of any tyre other than a pushbike tyre and God only knows how long it'll be before I have it on.

Like the concept and design any one get one and try it
Just changed 2 tires and one was the 10 min change and the other was the 30 min aggravation

If someone tries it with good luck I would be interested
