   "After arguing with the poorly designed  XX bar for years, I bought one of Dave's tire
   bars and sold my XX bar after using Dave's bar the first time! The demount end is

   the difference in the world! 2 thumbs up to Dave!"

  I'm itching to use the Dave Bar and am out scouting wheels/tires to change. But for now I
  will say the quality and rugged construction are better than anything I've seen or used.

  Done two tires so far
  No scratches and it works great.
  So far all I have done is tires for friends. I'll burn one up here in a few weeks. Did 300
  + miles today.

  Hey I got my Dave Bar this afternoon and it looks like a force to be reckoned with. As
  luck would have it, I also picked up a Harbor freight set up this morning so I'm ready to
  peel some rubber.
  I used mine... Works great. Thanks!

  I just recently got the chance to use this tool for the first time....and it rocks!! First
  time, and I was able to rip the rear tire off and back on just like the vids.

  Thanks again Dave!!

  Received it today Dave.
  I received the tire mount and dismount tool today. It looks to be well thought out and
  well made. Fair price, fast delivery, and good quality make it all that much better.

  Thanks Dave.

  Me to. Looks like a well made tool. It might be a lil bit before I get the chance to use
  it, but if it performs as well as it looks everything should be good. This tool completed
  my tire changing set up. Thanks Dave!!!!

  Well I FINALLY got my tire changing stand finished at work and brought it home. Changed my
  first tire with it today, front tire on the Banduc, custom gold powder coated rims. The bar
  worked like a charm!!! Not a scratch! My stand need a little tweaking, but Rons buddies tire bar
  is the real deal! Sooooo much easier than spoons!!!Highly recommended.  For a cheap small
  tire changing stand, check out the Mojo stand, then get this bar to go with it.

  Thanks for the referral Ron!

  Hello Dave!

  I just wanted to say thanks for my recent tiretool purchase. I ride a honda CR250 and race on
  occasion which as youre probably aware, the clay here in the carolinas wears the tires pretty fast.
  I've beat up my hands for years using the traditional tire spoons and this new tool is a lifesaver.
  It now takes me a quarter of the time and a lot less muscle, not to mention I no longer carve my
  rims up! Im absolutely thrilled with my purchase!

  Thanks and keep up with the great ideas!!!!!!!!!!!!

  Update: I used the tire tool to install tires on my KLR. The front tire is relatively easy to do since it's
  so skinny. The rear tire is fatter and more like a sportbike tire.

  Background: I have a hell of a time changing tires. I have a tire changer (the harbor freight one)
  which helps holding it down but I always need extra hands and extra muscle.

  I used the new tire tool and I did it by myself!!! No extra hands needed!! Sweet!!!!! The hardest part
  for me was to get the demount end caught under the tire bead and getting the mount end engaged
  with the tire. Other than that, it was a piece of cake! I couldn't believe how easy it was. Oh, the block
  of wood to hold the bead in the center of the wheel was a great idea. That helped too.

  Thanks Dave!! I like my new tire tool!!

  +1 for the Dave Bar
  Finally used it last night. I'm going to sell my MoJo lever. Mount end works the same, dismount end
  is a great improvement and being 1/3 the weight seals the deal. I just wish it was painted or powder
  coated so it doesn't rust in the garage. All Hail Dave......

   Just an update... this bar is the way to go. I've used it on several types of tires including some stiff
   wall touring tires -the "no-scuff" bar makes all the difference and requires a lot less effort. Getting
   ready to sell the XX bar.... Thanks for the heads up, Ron.

  Hey Dave my name is R.J. DAVIS and I am the owner/operator of a small motorcycle repair shop on
  the east coast of central florida "TOMAHAWK CYCLES". I purchased one of your bars and extra ends
  for both sides about a year ago and I would like to say THANK YOU for making such a great product.
  I have since expanded my business into a larger location and am still using your bar. After around
  100 changes they still have the original ends and are going strong. I honestly think that your product
  is the best of its kind on the market and I've used most, so thanks again and best of luck to you.

  Dave,
  I went to a tire shop this morning and bought an old 13" rim.  Then I constructed my tire removal tool,
  used my bead breaker that is similar to yours, and removed my old tire and mounted my new one with
  very little effort with your tool.  The tool worked great!  I'd still be outside cursing had I tried using tire
  tools to do the job.  Your tutorials on You Tube came in handy too.  Thanks for sharing your knowledge!
  Ron

  Dave,
  I just wanted to send you a belated thank you.  The tool arrived just a couple days after the order.  It was
  of much higher quality than I was expecting.  Beautiful work.
 
  This past Saturday, I finally put it to the test.  As you would expect, the tool worked as advertised using
  the tips and hints you suggested.  The small wood blocks were indespensible.  I would think that using a
  tire iron would be a lot easier with that tip alone.  Previously, my knees and feet accomplished that task.
  Duh!  With the blocks in place, the bead came right over the rim with very little effort right a the neck of
  the demount tip.
 
  The tool made the process a dream.  My wrists and palms used to hurt from all the shoving needed with
  irons even with leather gloves on.  Not now.  No gloves necessary.  Also, the nice sized gap that remains
  just before pulling the mount side of the tool out is enough to easily drop in the Dynabeads.
 
  I'm sure this is typical feedback for you, but I wanted to send along my appreciation.  Thanks again.
 
  Have a good day,
  Tony

  Hi dave,

  Just a quick feedback, the kit worked great on a 120/70 17 tyre for my Guzzi, SO EASY that my 6 year
  old son demounted it.....Very pleased, thanks for all your excellent advice, service, and of course a
  great product.

  Regards

  I have a low cost "Harbor Freight" quality motorcycle tire changing stand. I have used if primarily as a
  bead breaker and wheel      holding stand for the last year, preferring to "take it to the floor" so I could
  use my knees while wrestling tires off and on. What a chore! With the no-scuff tire tool, I hardly break
  a sweat. Great tool. Thanks, Dave.

  Hi Dave
 
  Finally got my bar built here in the UK and  I just thought I'd give you a little feedback.
  WHAT A SUPERB PRODUCT!  Why, oh why  didn't I buy this thirty years ago!?
 
  Really Dave, I cannot express how pleased I am with how it works...so easy!
  First time use last Saturday (just using a bit of common sense) took less than 8 mins to demount
  AND mount a new tyre...unbelievable!
 
  It was so easy it left me with over  40 mins of spare time which I had budgeted with which to scratch
  my head in amazement!
 
  I have also made my own tyre changing station which cost just a few and which is far, far simpler
  than using the 14" rim with    threaded bar as on your website.
When I have time, I'll take a few pics
  to show you just how simple (bit like me) it is!
 
  Once again Dave, thanks for making such a great product at such a reasonable price!
 
  By the way, the tyre in question was a 17/55/190 sports bike tyre...and the beads on those tend to
  be pretty tough to allow for their speed rating.
 
  Speak soon, best regards
 
  Keith  from the UK
