Minor incompatibility between rim depth and tyre bead circumference can lead to a near impossible struggle when fitting a new tyre. And it's doubly challenging not to puncture your tube in the process. Just like with a car tyre, the Tyre Easy-On pivots on one rim, grabs the opposite bead and stretches it on. A workshop sanity-saver.
I was riding GP 5000 foldable tyres and punctured on unseal out in the wilderness behind Lake Kanieri. I was unable to change the tube and rode home on a flat tyre. I researched tools that enabled reseating the tyre and this Tyre jack came up as the best. I was quite excited to try it and changed two tyres but could not get it to work. The part that was meant to grab the bead and jack it onto the tyre kept slipping off. Found it really frustrating and resorted to using normal tyre levers. This was with wired tyres and maybe it works better with Kevlar beaded ones. Also because I am over 70 maybe I do not have the hand strength to work this tool.
However at the same time I bought an Afterburner Jacket and have nothing but praise for that. I especially like the side pockets at the back - very roomy - because of the “WhaleTail”. I carried 4 sandwiches on my last 200km ride without any effort at all. Excellent colour, protection, material - I would give it 5 stars.
