  1. Chris,
    Thanks for posting the info on the Cobra Tire Tool!

    It is unbelievable how fast the word has spread around the globe about this new concept in demounting / remounting bicycle tires. I introduced the Cobra Tire Tool at a local bike ride called the Hilly Hundred in 2010 and since then the response has been phenomenal!

    Yes, it is true that I developed the tool with the same basic concepts and principles used in the commercial and automotive tire industry. With more than 20 years of experience in that industry, I wondered why the technology and methods that we used hadn’t crossed over into the cycling world. Utilizing a straight bar lever to manually pry a tire off the rim was old school and dates back over 100 years. It was time to bring the art of working on a bike tire into the 21st. century!

    I developed the prototype of the tool over 13 years ago but didn’t do anything with the design until early 2010 when friends and family members finally convenience me to take a risk and see what happens. I was amazed at how simple the design was and how easily it worked. In fact that was the cause of the 13+ year delay in producing it. I just couldn’t believe someone else hadn’t already brought it to market.

    Thanks again for thinking the Cobra Tire Tool important enough to include in your site!
