Changed my own tires...
My wife got me the Cycle Hill changer for Christmas along with the scratch proof bead breaker so after building a platform for it and making a set up for my balancer with work table in the basement I decided to try it today. I removed my front rim and walked right down to the basement, cold tire and all.
Bead broke right off, not trouble, hardly even worked for it and I used a trick I read on Webbikeworld to put a bungee cord on the breaker to lift it back up for you as you rotate the tire, worked perfectly.
I then sprayed the bead, took the dismount bar, insert, twist and rotate, pop off it came, insert, twist and rotate and pop the tire is off. 15 or 20 min start to finish.
I am waiting on the replacement tire to install, but wow, what a freaking cake walk so far, can't believe I waited so long and spent so much on tires from stealers.
Anyone who uses a set or more of tires a year is crazy not to get this changer, it will pay for itself in two changes I am guessing, three if you add the balancer and a few extra supplies.
I am on my third set of tires on the Versys, I am running z6's which I can get for about $250 a set delivered, I paid a local ind shop just over $200 for a rear alone, and that is with me removing the rim myself. That means I am saving about $100 to $150 a set of tires, not to mention the time to drive to the dealer drop the rims off, drive back and pick them up.
