Recommended Posts

I just found this video - using proper technique and 3 zip ties this guy replaces a MOTO Z rear tire with 6" spoons. ( 16cm).

Worth the watch. all about proper technique

I have it on good authority that it's always about technique...

Take note of the last comment about a little air in the tube to prevent accidental pinch flats.

I tried for 2 hours to follow the video technique. I bought 3 large c clamps and large zip ties. The C clamps helped me break the bead and I was able to get the first part over the rim. But, using tightened zip ties I just couldn't get the Pirelli MT21 rear off the rim. I gave up after two hours and brought it to my local independent servicer. $50 and a thank you. 12 hours later. So I know I can replace a tube on the trail but won't be replacing whole tires.

Sometimes you need to find your own technique.
I can change a tyre with just a set of Bead Pro tyre irons but at home i have a simple device to make it just a bit easier.
But last year i rode 34500km so it makes investing in tools a bit more logical.

What is the "simple device"?

Just did my rear with a new Motoz Tractionator Adventure, used the cable tie method only used two levers, easiest tyre change I've ever done!

Hardest part was breaking the bead, had to use a 6" G clamp.
