    Make tire changes easier.

    We have learned the hard way the things that do not substitute for a tire lever: Metal spoon, screwdriver, fingers, floor pump thumblock, prayer and much more. The humble tire lever, in this case the Park Tool TL-1 Set-of-3 Tire Levers, is something so simple yet so vital for happy & self-sufficient bike riding. They're good for helping you fix countless flats thanks to their durable nylon construction. They are tough to bend and even tougher to break, but likewise they peel back the bead of your clincher tire without doing a whit of damage to your rim. Don't leave them behind because if you do and you flat you are totally screwed.

    The TL-1 is a 3-pack of levers. You can loan one and lose one because you really only need one to fix a flat. There are a few wheels out there (Campagnolo rims come to mind) where the tire fit is so tight you may need 2.

    Save the day

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Pretty easy to use (even for a newbie) I received this set of tools and the next weekend I had to use them. It was my first time changing my road bike tubes and I made it thanks to this.

    Cheap and effective

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    My little brother manages to flat at least 2 times every time we ride. Despite the DH casings on his tires, he still manages to do it. So, I always end up fixing his flats. And since he has DH casings, his tires are a pain to pull of. Fortunately, these levers make short work of those tires.

    Multiple Sets

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These cost so little that its easy to have a few sets of these stashed all over the place...in the car, tool kit, pack, etc.

    They work great and are easy to use. After I picked up a sheet rock screw on the trail one day, I busted out my set and was able to break the bead on my tire real easy and get to work.

    Good for the Price

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Easy and light to throw into a backpack or saddle bag, but certainly easy to brake if you crank on them too hard. For just a few bucks, I always like having a couple of these on my bike or around the house

    second pair

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Better for your rim than metal, lighter, and easier to pack around. These are my main pair now and I keep my metal levers for the real pain in the butt rims/tires

    prefer the TL-4

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    pros: skinny, light and fit in your bag. plus you get 3 of them.
    cons: more prone to breaking than others.

    I personally prefer the park tool TL-4 which backcountry/cc don't seem to carry. Harder to break, and they seem to work better for me.

    prefer the TL-4

    Great tool for the price

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Keep some in the pack for trailside changes but I've also used these in the shop.

    Good tool for the price, but they are on the flimsy side. I haven't had one break on me yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if one did.

    Like the hook for attaching to the spoke and the fact that they stack together for compact storage.

    Staple

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    It seems like this is the one tool you can never have enough of. The price is right, and they are light, portable and pretty strong provided you don't try to use them as a crowbar. Keep a few extra on hand as they tend "to walk."

    Function well, good price

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These tire levers work quite well for almost all tires. I had some struggles mounting a wire bead 2-ply downhill tire but that's not surprising, you almost need metal reinforced tire levers for that. These are not reinforced with metal but they are still quite strong and work well for most tires out there. It's a good price for a three pack so even if you break one you still have two left.

    Basic lever but a little soft

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have a set of these for a few years now and they function fine. Until I tried a pair of Pedro's levers which are even stiffer, I found that these are a little bit on the soft side. Especially when mounting or dismounting a pair of newer GP4000S, I found these a little bit on the soft side.
