interesting. since I read about it on the forums I use toe clip straps & a tire jack. or in this case 2 toe clip straps & a velcro strap. my winter marathons are pretty tough

this other thing is called a "speedier lever" & does provide some features & benefits that customary levers do not. it gets used pretty much for all tire changes

my tire jack only works on narrow tires, perfect for 25mm tires

also, always pinch them & make sure they are well into the wheel channel, giving you more slack on the opposite side
