I always have difficulty mounting tires on the last part. I was thinking of buying one of these tools. Has anyone tried either the Koolstop tire bead jack or the Easyhand biketool and what are your thoughts?
I use the Koolstop Jack Bead. It's the only way I can get my GP4000 tires on my Reynolds rims. I've never had a problem before with previous GP4000 tires, but this set is particularly tight. I've tried it on a set Ksyrium SL rims and it is just as tight. Before I purchased the Jack Bead, I broke two plastic tire levers, and the LBS broke two Pedros tire levers.
