    Sadly I'm not in Sydney these days otherwise I'd call past and flick it off for you just out of sympathy, 1cb. Mind you a guy with a trolley and a tailgate loader ute would make short work of delivering that so next excuse :hmmmmm

    +1 for Cycle Hill, handy even if you're not using them.
    These are handy when fitting new tyre.

    I have my own workshop and use my car machines to do it takes no time at all. Maybe scope Gumtree for an old machine?

    The SCA with the bike attachment aren't much chop unless you spend some time modifying it. I use mine for hanging old tubes off it, it's seems okay for that.:lol3
    I bought the Tyre pliers one second hand and it's pretty good. Not sure If I'd pay the price of a new one though. Only one tyre has beaten me and that's an 18" Dunlop tubeless on my wifes Victory. But even the tyre fitter rekons they're a pain.
