    Mate of mine has added an Air Cannon to his tyre-ring kit.
    Over time hes added cracks to his forehead too.

    I have an air cannon, best thing ever for seating a stubborn bead.
    Its saved me numerous times.
    Works way better than metho or lighter fluid, I still have both eyebrows!


    It also fires potatoes about 2k :lol3

    We tried to build an air cannon to launch water balloons at other boats during tournament sail pasts but for some reason we never quite got the engineering right...

    That scissor jack from a earlier post can also be used to push the last of the bead onto the rim.

    I put a handle from my 1/2'' socket set into the wheels bearings then cable tie the scissor jack into place so it can push off the handle to force the bead past the lip.

    Just wondering if the No Mar is still the bees knees for big tyre changes in the shed?

    Funny story... about baby powder...

    on a group cycle ride a few summers back... We all stopped for a coffee at the usual spot...

    One of the crew just prior to departure, ducks into the washroom to re-powder the cycle nix before the next session...

    Outside a few minutes later and we all roll off... get to a slight uphill grade a bit from the beachfront, and the same rider gets up on the pedals to crank... at the same instant feels the need to equalize the intestinal methane levels with the outside atmosphere... and rips off a neat Johnson's baby powder mushroom cloud... :lol2

    To which the rider immediately behind him suffers a mad fit of laughter, that creates a three rider domino effect in the group - and the third poor bastard ends up in the kerb and over the bars into a light post... :eekers broken collarbone and ambulance called to scene... :eek7
