This is what I used to break the bead on my tires today.
I put it on the bead and stepped on the weight like a pogo stick and the bead broke easy. And to think that I almost got ride of then yesterday.

For a front tire, a well paced side stand will work wonders. Back tires are a little tougher, but you can usually find a way to get it done.

When y'all going out to the super secret spot this week? Weds again? Wanna come get me & my bike?

(can't watch the vid at work, what did he use to break the bead?)

I was wondering about using a C-clamp. They sell a tool for $50 that pretty much looks like one with a nut that you use a wrench on. I'm wanting to add something to the traveling tool kit that is small and compact but that can break the bead on a tire easily.
