Crank Brothers Speed Lever

Has anyone on this forum used one, to remove or fit their tyres?
Yes, though it can be hit and miss with tyre/rim combos so also carry traditional tyre levers. Damn sight quicker though along with the lifetime warranty which I had to make use of that Evans nearly refused to honour.
I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
Thanks, seems worth a shot at £4.99, cheers.
I've found these work fine on fatter tyres (say 32mm and above) and are really hard work on 23s. For thin road tyres (unless the rim/tyre combo is particularly forgiving) you always need a normal tyre lever to finish the job. Good to have in the toolkit though.
