Remember the IRC levers are the right shape for any right tyre and any lever thht can do 12 month in the shop without breaking is a good one for me. so yes I am a fan. It's the shape that important and the IRC levers are by far the toughest.

Tomhatesyou yes you can use other levers and mount tubeless tyres but if you have a tight combo then an irc lever or other lever that is similarly shaped makes the job easier. The var RP42500 is the right shape but bends to easily then breaks. Park have a lever that's the right shape but that breaks. The schwalbe levers are pretty good but they do bend. I have broken them as well. Campagnolo levers are tough enough and nearly the right shape.

I'm am fussy. Why should I not be I mount tubeless tyres daily and often it's not a hand fit combo it's nice and tight and for that I need the right tool.

I have not convinced myself the tool convinced me. I am also a fan of cyclus campagnolo bootom bracket tools, my wheels manufacturing bearing presses any good tool that speeds up a job.

Worms differ. I have no trouble getting the one I use to hold at 80 psi.depends on the size of the hole though.but the above is true for a 4 to 4mm long hole.

Like I said earlier, my issue is never with mounting, as I use that tyre jack thingie. I'd like tio know which is the best lever to get a tough tyre off a rim?

Still the IRC? Or would the VARS or Crank Brothers work better? Taking the Pro Ones off my Kinlin or Velocity rims drives me to tears.

Silca levers are a lot thinner at the tip than other ones I've tried, shouldn't be an issue sliding it under the bead.

https://thecycleclinic.co.uk/products/i ... yre-levers says "One end is designed for dismounting tires while the other end is designed specifically for mounting.". I'm going to give them a go.

I'm ready to try out tubeless. The only wheelset I own that is TL-ready are my Hed Belgium + which are on my tandem. So I will start with that first. Later on I plan to get a set of Campy Bora WTO wheels which are two-way fit. I'm waiting for my LBS to get the TL in stock as I get a team discount with them. But so far they don't have any in stock which is strange as they are are high volume online shop.

I’m told that the US had a limited supply and many shops did not get them. My LBS mistakenly got some extras and I’m basically one of a few in town that rides tubeless. If you decide that you can’t wait shoot me a on and I can forward a pair to you but he only has 25’s in stock

Got the 25mm Conti 5000 TLR, so easy to inflate on Reynolds AR41X compared to Schwalbe pro one. Went on easy as well.
Really happy with them, ride very nicely.

Thanks for the offer. I’m looking at either the 28s or 32s for the tandem.
