I decided to put new tyres on my bike the other day. I chose a pair of Continental GP4000s tyres, but I digress! When I was putting on the second one I snapped a tyre lever – yes I know you should not use tyre levers for this, but I just couldn’t get the last bit of tyre over the rim.

Anyway, while looking at Wiggle I can across a tool titled : Crank Brothers Speed Lever. The manufacturer’s site is here. This tool makes removing or putting on a tyre dead easy. I am very tempted to take one with me on race days as I am sure the time lost due to the small amount of extra weight will be more than made up by the savings should I have to do a tyre change.

A wicked tool that makes changing tyres very easy!
