Strengths:    - It works!, it actually works!
- Won't snap like pissy thin ones
- Gentle on tyres because of its wide design
- Much safer than metal levers
- Big, bright Michelin yellow levers that are easy to spot on the tools table.


Weaknesses:    - No hook thingy like other levers but it's like I ever use the hooks anyway.

Bottom Line:   
It's cheap, it works, it's safe and you only really need one lever.

Date Reviewed: May 31, 1999

Strengths:    
Flat design gets in between tyre and rim really easily. The plastic they have used won't snap even with very tight fitting tyres.


Weaknesses:    
They don't have the little hook at the end of the lever to hold the spoke, but they work well anyway so I haven't found this to be a problem.


Bottom Line:   
These and other tyre levers cost next to nothing, but if you are stranded in the widerness with a flat a good set are invaluable. Buy a good set that will not let you down - get these.

Tire levers for SUPER tight tires?

My blue park ones just can't do the job. Which ones do you suggest for SUPER tight tires?Read More »

Tire levers?

My little blue park levers met their match yesterday, and would like a more robust set. The wire bead Nevegal was a bastard to get off my Sunringle wheel. Longer, and made of aluminum I'm thinking. I like the look of the crank brothers tool. Any recommendations?Read More »

Pedro's Tire Levers: Unsung Heroes

So I have a Schwalbe tubeless ready front tire and a rim with no real channel in the middle. It's an extraordinarily difficult combination to mount and dismount. I've managed in the past, but for whatever reason, today I was less competent. I managed to launch and lose one of my blue Park Tool ti ... Read More »

Tire Levers

Is it possible to order just the tire levers for the headtube tool from Cannondale? Unfortunately, I lost the tire levers off my tool while transporting my bike to a ride on the bike rack. I loved the concept of the tool, and I'd love to be able to replace just the levers instead of buying an entir ... Read More »
