99Eur + Shipping seems a bit much. Probably find it at HFT for $12 next year
friggen sweet! where can you get one?
In English please.
Looking for one here in the States.
....like to see him do it with a Heidenau K60 rear....
Maybe if he had 3 of them
it makes perfect sense though... no need to wedge the iron between the rim and lip of the tire, or add the thickness of the iron between them when stretching the tire over.
This guy didn't even really try very hard to get the lip on the opposite side down in the U channel of the rim...
plus, it would be almost impossible to pinch the tube like this!
Now i'm thinking of how I could make one!
I'm thinking some type of tiny rack and pinion steering parts maybe?
Maybe not but who knows, in the video it looks easy. Great idea, price a little steep even if you happen to be in Estonia but then a guy bought a hundred dollar tool tube on the FM here so maybe I'm not looking at the scale of development. Probably worth every penny, right after you brake a knuckle and wish you had one
I made meself one.... Works ok..No chance of pinching the tube or
marking the rim...
Got to chance the claw shape it jumps off the tyre at times...
Its a good shed tool.. will do 17" to 21" wheels..fits bearings/axles 15mm up..

Will this work with tubeless tires as well?
I would have to assume so...but don't like making assumptions.
Seriously, it looks like a handy tool for tires that are easy to manage.
I have a HF changer and use a Mojo lever with it. When I put a new K60 (150/70-17) on the other day, I was pulling on the bar so hard for that last bit to slide beneath the rim when it finally went in the bar came around and hit me in the side almost collapsing a lung (exaggeration..) LOL
Those tires are great but a biatch to change on my changer. Gonna pick up a NoMar Yellow Thing to help holding that final bit below the rim.
did you CNC the "Rack" portion of that or....?
nothing tricky... just cut it & the gear in a mill
There's no reason it wouldn't work with tubeless tires, but I can't think of any reason you would need it. I think it looks like a great product for big heavy tires that are mounted with tubes and sometimes rimlocks, such as those comonly used on KTMs and BMW 800GSs etc.
If the tool was available in the USA for a reasonable price I would buy it.
It never occurred to me to fasten the valve stem prior to the first tire bead.
I run a car tire on my GSA/Hack for the bike and sidecar tire.
That's why I asked.
I could easily make a shim for the axle post to work.
Once again, just not available in the States.
that's easier to carry around that my mojo bar....which I broke the other day helping a friend with his tire...........
So this tool can mount a tire but do you still need irons to dismount a tire? If so, kind of redundant no?
