Was that your first tire change? The bead can be difficult to break. I have never had any success with using the kick stand. I use the HF bead breaker like you have and it makes it so easy. I do a couple tires a month around here and all you need is 2 or 3 spoons depending on how many hands you have. Here's the secret... The #1 problem people have is not keeping the bead in the groove of the wheel opposite where you are prying. If the bead isn't down in the groove, you will never get anywhere.
