I have not had a chance to give it a go yet, as I don't need to change tires at this time, but I cannot imagine why it would not work on the XC's Excel wheels any differently than it would work on any other wheels.

The standard tool fits a 20mm axle size, and comes with a sleeve to space it out to 25mm.

Also available for an extra charge are adapters for 15mm and 17mm. I purchased a 15mm one with mine so that I could use it on my KLX as well.

They guys on Husky Cafe did a group buy and seem to like the tool. I honestly don't see the advantage over a set of irons. You still need something to break the bead and remove the tire and putting the tire on isn't ever really that big of a deal, but I can appreciate the desire for a new gadget.

That's what I think also but I don't have to deal with tubed tires too much....yet.

However showed it to my friend, he is setting up his tire/restoration shop and he was very interested. His comment however.....I can make something like that in 5 minutes.Same comment he made when I showed him them "tire bars" and gave him the materials to make one.Done in about an hour! Give or take another hour and time to finish the tire machine, I am sure we could come out with something.

An anchor point....a lever/pusher....some UHMW.

It looks like that tire had a softer sidewall than the tires I use. There was alot of "give" in the sidewall..... It still looks like a tool to have in the garage.

I thought the same - that sidewall looked very pliable, I wonder if they heated the tire in some way

I looked around the "Husky Cafe" site and couldn't find any talk of the tool. If you know of any discusion would you post the link? Thanks

I think we are in a holding patern here until someone trys out the tool and gives a report.

Looks like the guys over at Cafehusky give their approval as all comments are good. I'd say a group buy is a go.

PineyMountainRacing said he would do the group buy...maybe.

I suggest all the group buyers throw in and buy PineyMountainRacing one for his efforts. Lets see 25 buyers, cost of one device about 120...thats 4.80 each. Make that 5 bucks tip for PineyMountainRacing efforts.

Hope to see other chime in and agree and get this buy going. I got 2 mefos ready to put on! Lets go Piney
