I have a number of bikes and each bike's toolbag is outfitted with a pair of these levers.

HINT: Buy two packs of these levers and you'll have enough for three bikes!

They have worked almost without exception to enable flat fixes and tire change outs while in the garage or on the road. (The one exception was when trying to install 700x27, yes 27, Panaracer wire beads onto a Shimano 540 wheelset for cyclocross - then I had to resort to the big boys - the beefy man-sized metal Park TL-5s)

HINT: These levers, unlike the TL-4s, have a very useful feature. See those hooks on the end? Nope, they're not for gutting fish on the pier or for cleaning out field fowl after shot-gunning in the cornfield - use them to hook onto a nearby spoke after levering a portion of the tire off your wheel's rim - very, very handy as a third hand!

These levers are a rare bargain and a standout example of quality and utility in today's corncucopia of cheap import tools - get a pair for your kit or bag!

Context: I ride about 120 miles a week and spend much of my free time repairing/refurbishing/building bicycles.

I love these tire levers because they are plenty sturdy enough, and most importantly, small and lightweight. I have a set of the CrankBros steel ones(which are AWESOME), but I don't ride with them because they're obnoxiously big and heavy. These lil guys fit into a tiny top bar-mounted pack meant for gelpacks --- along with a multi tool, a patch kit, and a squirt gun :)

As someone noted above, they may break or bend on high-tension wheels -- he mentioned 23x700s, and I've found the same to be true on my Contis as well. I've done tons of work on kids' bikes, and that is usually the only other situation when one of these levers bends or breaks. (Stripping little kids' bike tires is a PITA!!!)

But for general usage, these can not be beat. I am just now replacing a set I've had for several months (and as you might tell, I use them a LOT) and that's because I handed them off to a friend who had a blowout near my neighborhood. I'm doubling up on my order, actually.

I bought these due to the Park Tools reputation.
They worked well on wider tires (MTB). Unfortunately they don't work on the Continental Ultra Gatorskin 23 x 700C tires on my road bike.

The spoke hooks on two of the levers broke off after a few uses; the end used for prying the tires off have bent backwards, making them completely useless. Granted, these tires are incredibly difficult to install and remove. However, I expected a Park Tools product to be up to the challenge.

The only tool that works on my Continental tires is the Crank Brothers speed lever.

These tire levers are light and snap together. They don't take up much room unlike other brands like the Pedro lever.

They are also pretty cheap so you can buy a bunch of them to put in the tire-patching kits of every bike you own and would not be a hardship if someone stole it off the bike.

They are not as strong or stable as the Pedro but pack smaller and are half the cost/lever. They do tend to be a little bit bendy and the spoon area is even a little more bendy. They do fit into the bead area a little bit better and because the spoon is so small and thin it makes it easier to slide them in without worrying about pinching the tube.

The downside is that it is hard to slide the lever sideways to "unzip" the tire from the bead. The plastic is softer and doesn't slide as well on the rim like the Pedro levers do. It all depends on how badly one needs lever. In a bad situation I'd probably prefer the Pedro but all in all I've never broken one of these and I have broken the Pedro levers (darn near put an eye out with the piece that flew off too.) I think it would be hard to snap one of these as it would probably just bend before it broke. They are not super-stiff. Instead of breaking the lever would just bend and snap out of the bead. Unfortunately this issue makes these levers a bit harder to use on "tough cases" where a tire doesn't want to mount. I've never had a tire I couldn't get of with these or broken one but I did have a few I had to struggle with.

Usually when I'm putting a tire on in my workshop and it is fighting me I just pull out the Kool stop tire jack and that just muscles the tire on. Once a tire has been on for a while it is usually easier to get it back off as it breaks in a bit.

I bought these to replace the latest in a long line of cheap levers after I snapped two changing a tube in a race (luckily I was carrying three!). That's why I thought I'd get the Park levers - they look bulletproof, and they are. Sadly their bulletproof design and the feature that "... actually lifts the tire away from the rim and keeps the tube from being pinched" has resulted in a thin lever-end (which some reviewers say can bend on tight beads) transitioning to a very thick lever body. Sure it does exactly what they say, but on a tyre with a tight bead and a wheel with a flatter rim design it pulls the bead so tight that it's ludicrously difficult to insert a second lever, or even just slide the lever along the rim to unseat the tyre.

My initial joy at seeing how sturdy the levers looked when I got them lasted only until first use. I will give them to someone I don't like all that much and go back to levers that cost half as much and break twice as often. I can also change a tyre with the cheaper levers twice as fast and with half the effort. This is the only Park tool I've disliked, but I will not buy their levers again.
