Certain tools make your job easier and this is one of them.
Motion Pro Bead Buddy II
Simple idea, but it works! Helps eliminate having more than 3 irons needed. After using bead buddy was able to change out mini / large Moto tires with ease using only 2 irons 1 large lever and 1 medium lever.
Well made and I'm sure I'll use it at some point, but it isn't designed for wide motard wheels. It doesn't reach the bead when attached to the spoke.
The bead buddy was something new to me, but sure is worth every penny. Held my aggravating tire in place and allowed me to struggle with one less problem while changing my tube type tires. No problem with pinched tubes while using the bead buddy.
Makes it so much simpler for one person to mount a tire keeping both hands free to use the tire irons
I won't even bother attempting to change a tube or tire with out this gem. A must have tool.
Works really well. Must have for doing your own tire changes along with motion pro tire spoons
Just recently started running bib mouse in my bike. Great to have when mounting any tire with tube or bib insert. Great tool to have in the box.
works well for doing a tire change by yourself.
this makes tire removal and mounting so much easier. definitely would recommend it
As with the other Motion Pro Tools, this is well designed & made with excellent materials. What it does, it does it well, makes the work for installing a tire sooo much easier. If you have not installed "Hundreds" of tire like myself, this tool is a must. It seems no one is around when a extra hand is needed, this is like that extra hand, can't run away or complain, and their is that old question, "How much Longer? is never asked. The pro's in the many video's can do this all day long with or without this tool, but they seem to use this because their job just became a little bit easier.
This product is a must have if you change your own tires. It does exactly what it is suppose to do. Saves time and frustration.
Just started changing my own tires. I know they say you can get by without this but it's really helpful and you can't beat the price.
Like having a third hand.
used it this weekend worked well.
Bought 2. It's like having an extra pair of hands.
you wont need any friends!
The bead buddy helps a bunch when putting tires on, especially when you use two, the new version is lighter so it's easy to pack on the trail.
I bought this tool cause I needed that extra hand when changing a tire. Its finish is excellent but the use of the tool is exceptional. I was tired of leveraging spoons to hold the bead of the tire so I gave this a chance and its something I should have bought awhile ago. It does what its says. It holds the bead in place while putting on or taking off the tire. An absolute need for a racers tool box.
The bead buddy is awesome. Definitely makes it super easy to put a tire back on the rim!
