my hands and fingers were raw after getting the last tyre apart for a puncture repair (i didnt even take the whole tyre off!) the park levers took a proper beating too - a testament to their strength really
- i even knock my rim out of true as well
i don't ever want to have to change a wire bead again, although my kujos were pretty difficult to get on and off - but by difficult i mean, difficult - but i could do it with my bare hands and no levers
searching for some commute/off road tyres at the mo, all the clearance tyres on CRC are wire bead or random sizes....
i'm steering clear of wire beads for now....
