Hi Kim
I'm getting new tyres shortly and the other day you recommended Scorpion.
Is it the Scorpion Trail II made by Pirelli ?
Ride safe

Hi Bob, it sure is, I found a good price on Demon Tweeks, so I always have a set in the shed, but usually have my mechanic sort me a set and install on the wheels.

Did you buy the bead breaker or pneumatic tyre machine?
The Motion Pro's come with a patented feature on the Levers that allow you to break the bead, no room for a full-on tyre machine.
I went for the longer ones, as I don't plan on carrying them with me on the bike.

ha ha i had a home made one once but replaced it with a second hand one from e bay. just isn't portable on the bike. the motion pros look ok but seem to be a tad expensive for what is just a couple of fancy tyre levers. might have a go at making something this winter thats portable on the bike. i've a couple of ideas that might work and be relatively packable
