Got these to assist in my first tire replacement. Easy to use, maybe not 100% necessary but certainly made it easier to get the tires on and off. Fit nice in my handlebar bag so I have them with me all the time to assist in any tube replacements on the roadtrail.
I was replacing my rear tire and it seemed to work well. Nice size, easy to find (bright yellow) grips well, one of them broke the tip. I have reshaped what is left with a grinder and it still works.
I'm changing my tires all the time stationary trainer tires to training tires to race tires and back. I only got these levers recently and am glad I did. Smooth edges, sturdy, and hold up to significant force. They're strong enough that I haven't had to use them as a pair yet, even with a particularly stiff, stubborn tire. I've gotten rid of my old levers. Great product.
Smooth and rounded enough that I am not worried about pinching the tube when taking off the tire. Easy to use and nice and light. Don't really think much about tire levers until you use once that don't work! I was using an older set up metal levers and always had problems. Once I got these, they are lighter and work so easily! Nice to upgrade something we use only when things are not going well, it is nice to know you can rely on these. Great tools!
I use the Pedros Tire Levers on vintage wired-on tiresrims as well as newer style wheels. These are the only levers I've used that haven't flinched when changing the old wired on tires - very rock solid. The nicely radiused contact edges reduce the probability of damaging the inner tube. Shortly after receiving The Pedros Levers, they were put to the test when I got a flat on the road. Removing and reinstalling the tire was easy and trouble free and got me back on the road in short order.
I bought these levers because I broke a set of normal tire levers changing the tire on my sons mountain bike. It was one of those tires with the heavy wire in the bead. I broke all three levers in the set. Got the Pedros levers and they worked awesome, got the tire off no problem. I thought they might be to big for my road bike but they work perfectly on my 23c tires.
They work great and the price is excellent. I have a set that I carry and a set for home too.
