Product review for the new Terry Cable tire irons.


I can't believe I've used those crappy Moose tire irons for so long. No WONDER I've been pinching tubes!

These Terry Cable tire irons have great handles. I didn't even bother using gloves. With my Moose irons, I had to use gloves to prevent my hands from getting gouged.

Plus, the tips have sort of an 's' bend to them. The bend at the tip that bites into the tire is pretty small. So there is almost no chance of pinching the tube. But, it also bends slighly the other way to give you the option of grabbing more bead.

And they seem strong. I've bent cheaper tire irons in the past. I really cranked on these babies and they flex just barely but won't bend.

If you change your own tires, with out a doubt, I now consider these a MUST HAVE! They are only 12 bucks each with is about what I paid for my Moose irons. Did I mention that those are crappy?

My tire went on easier last night than any other I've ever changed. And it was fairly cool in my garage and the rubber was a little chilled (50 degress or so). However, the Terry cable irons aren't the kind you would want to pack on a trip. They are a little bulky for that.



Thanks for the info...

Now that I'm a tire changer I need to know about stuff like this! :)

( puff chest out and do your best "Tim Allen" grunt)

Hey Chris! Sup?

I actually found it at the local dealer! Amazing since the dealers around here can only ORDER good things for you! I got my Terry Cable Hot start the same day.

You don't have to sound like Tim Allen with this tire iron. It makes things much easier than when I used those Moose tire irons.


Local Dealer? Don't get me started, I found out last night that he ripped off my wife, charged her $134 for my E-line CF skid Plate she bought my for my B-day! HE's supposed to be giving us 15% off retail, I've bought 3 bikes from this guy.....I'm buying mail order from now on...screw'm.

Okay,sorry for the rant, I feel better now :)
