    Yep. Have you had blisters on your thumbs yet, Scrod? I ordered a bead jack for the shop after that fateful day.

    I guess I'm lucky that most of our clientele are homeless dudes on steel-rimmed Magnas shod with old, floppy 1.95" knobbies.

    Tool-free tire mounts all day = no problemo.

    Oh, I don't use my thumbs to get tires on, either. I wring them onto the rim with the upper part of my palms. I should make video.

    I had one a few years ago that was pretty gnarly paired with one on my palm that basically made my whole hand useless.

    Enjoy it while it lasts. When I was a 20-something, working in a bike shop, I had no problem doing tool-free tire mounts all day. Now that I'm 58, with arthritis in my hands, I can't do it anymore, so I use a bead jack.

    well having a tool is a little excessive when you do it at most 1x/week instead of 10's or even 100's of times/week is all im sayin'

    not trying to make some "bead jacks are for *****s" type maxim here

    I can eat spaghetti just fine with my hands but - even though I don't eat it very often - I still prefer to use a fork.

    I like tools for eating.

    I'm still tool-free when it comes to fingernail and toenail trimming, though

    I'm pretty sure I don't want to know how one trims toenails without a tool.

    And the lesson is: never tell the internet what you don't want to know.

    Continued work on my Raleigh Pointe beater bike. Plan is to knock it down to a 1x7 gearing, add some caliper or direct pull canti brakes, Vetta saddle, and maybe replace stem and bars with something more to my taste.

    As long as you do it without tools, it will be accepted.

    Which bag are you using? I'm using a Manhattan Portage and I can't find a place to just hook my lock to.
