    I ordered one of these a couple days ago, should arrive this Friday. One of my least favorite things to do is change tires so I figured I would give this thing a try after reading articles in Dirtrider and watching some utube videos. I will give a report on how it works next Monday.

    Well a little follow up.... Shipping is extremely slow!!! It's been over a week now and it still has not arrived. According to the tracking info it just arrived at the local post office so it should be here today or tomorrow at the latest. I probably will not have time to try it until the weekend though.

    Well if anyone is following this I'll give another update. It finally arrived!!! Nice looking product. It comes in 3 pieces and with 2 different size allen wrenches to assemble it. Looks like you definitely pack it in your gear but probably a little heavy for a fanny pack. I'll give it a try this weekend and report back on how it works.

    Well I got some free time last night and decided to swap out my back tire on the yz. I must say this thing works and works well, just like the utube videos. To start you still have to remove the tire and tube just as you always have but for me that has always been the easy part. I took 2 minutes before installing the tire to watch a utube video again to get a refresher then I got started. First thing I did was install the tube into the tire and then added some air for it to take shape. I then worked the valve stem into place with ease as shown in the videos. Next I pushed the tire down on one and then started pushing the tire on the rim keeping an eye on the rim lock, about 30 seconds later one side was on. I then pushed one side of the bead down on the rim with my knee in place holding it, no bead buddy, then started using the Baja. 30 seconds later I was putting air in the tire!!! This thing truly does work just as advertised and just as easy as it looks on the videos. Well worth the $90 if you change your own tires!!

    thanks Hurricane! I was just thinking.. do I need to get more tire stuff? I mean I hate to change tires but I have to do it sometimes but it seems this thing sort of cancels out all the other tire stuff that I've bought but hardly use.. but if it's good and easy like how it looks I think it's worth it.. Thanks for the feedback! and Merry Christmas!!

    Yeah it's definitely with the $ IMO. I have been changing dirt bike tires for years and I can only imagine the time and money of pinching tubes I would have saved. This thing works great and can even be taken out on the trail if needed.

    I have one to Hurricane. It is so nice to use and save your fingers. It does take a little more time when you are using it with tubeliss thro.

    It's a really great product that helps easing the hassle of tire changing. Usually those "product of the year" awards Dirtrider magazine has aren't very practical for most people but they nailed it with this one.
