Best Tire Lever: Crank Brothers Speedier Tire Lever
Crank Brothers Speedier Tire Lever (an upgrade from their "Speed Lever") is a single lever for removal of the tire bead from the wheel and also installation of the bicyle tire by lifting the tire bead up and over the rim. It is quick, simple and efficient if you encounter a falt tire out or puncture out on the road or when doing bike maintenance, bicycle tire replacement or tire repair on a road or mountain bike.
This single lever is marked on one end for installation and the other for removal. We’ll show you some time as to where to start removing the tire bead over the rim and a great tip in pushing that bead back over the rim of the bicycle wheel.
The lever can be purchased at most bike stores and through Amazon for about $8.44 and worth every cent.
The video shows you some tips on how to use the tool:
1. For removal, start near the valve and push the lever all the way around the wheel rim to lift off the bead.
2. To replace the tire bead over the rim after the tube or tire is repaired, start with the other end marked "installation" opposite the valve, push half way around to the valve, then pull back and push around the other half of the tire toward the valve. This technique is much easier then trying to push the tire lever all the way around.
It’s much easier then ordinary bike tire levers and can be accomplished on your cycle tyre in seconds with minimal effort.
