Tire Levers

I bought some Mr. Tuffys the other day to put in my tires but I don't have any tire levers yet. They are on order. I want to put these things in my tires. Is there anything else I can use to replace the tire levers? For now that is.

What size tires are you doing? 700 x 23c, I don't use levers, I just use my hands. You can get a cheap patch kit at Wal-Mart and get the levers out of there and throw the crappy patch kit away. Or some of you emergency tools like my Park have levers built into them.

You probably could remove those without levers. A quick release handle will work, so will a eating utinsel handle, assuming that is smooth and rounded.

Cool, thanks I think I will go out and do that right now. I just don't want to go out and take any chances in not putting them in and then having a flat on the road like I did the first day I had my bike. LOL.
