Park Tool TL-5 Tire Levers

The skinny 700x23 tires on my bicycle are difficult to remove and replace. Even with extreme care I break those small plastic tire levers.

My choice to address this issue was the larger, metal Park Tool TL-5 tire levers.

These are high-quality tools. They work very well for my application. They appear to be durable, even for my application.

The TL-5 measures 8.04" long, 1.14" wide (widest point), 0.72" wide (narrow end), 0.20" thick (body) and 0.08" to 0.11" (thick on curved tip). There is a 15/64" through hole to permit wall hanging. The mass is 160g.

The pair of TL-5 tire lever tools has worked well when changing my skinny 700x23 tires, plus when changing easier tires.

I would not hesitate to recommend this tool.
