    Tire changing?

    Who has a decent setup for changing tires? Was it dan? He still on here? I got 3 sets of tires that need changed and have no place close to take them do figured if look at doing it myself (to old and weak to do it with tire irons).

    Hey man, I'm still around and I still have a tire changer setup (Actually upgraded to the No-Mar), but I just had ACL surgery so I'm in no shape to change any tires right now myself.

    Cycle gear I think does them for about $20/wheel off the bike, but I've never used their services before.

    I was just looking to see what equipment you had and how it was working out. Looking to start doing my own since the only decent shop near me has closed.

    The Harbor Freight setup served me well for 10+ years. It got the job done and I sold it and it lives on.

    I upgraded to the No Mar Classic and it's definitely a lot nice and a lot easier to keep your wheels looking nice. My favorite feature is the bead breaker being at waist height instead of on the ground. It really saves your back. If there's one thing I'm not the happiest with and that is the main bar on the No Mar. It works fine for getting a tire off, but I find for some reason the bar really wants to rotate (out of the tire) when putting a tire on. However the MojoLever would work just a little bit better and would create the perfect setup. - http://home.comcast.net/~prestondrake/mojoweb.htm
