Crank Brother Speed Lever

I did not realise I have the speed lever with me all this while. I realised when I was moving from Singapore to Taiwan while packing my stuff. I believed I had bought it sometime in 2007 and had only used once. Anyway, recently I decided to use it to see how fast and effective this tool will perform so I decided to make a short introduction video on it.

Weighing 31g, size 155mm x 10mm x 12mm made of polycarbonate, Crank Brothers offer this master piece a LIFETIME Warranty. At first sight before using it, you will feel that this lever will break easily as it is made of polycarbonate. However upon using it, it held pretty well and relatively simple to use. The whole tire change took less than a minute.

Using the lever is easy, the lower end has a U channel and it sits on the wheel axle. The upper ends has 2 hooks. One end is used for removing the tire and the other to install. It will fit most rim size as the telescopic lever is adjustable. The beauty of this lever, it will not pinch the inner tube. Crank Brothers retailed price is USD6.50
