Yes, I have a new super power. Acquiring it was surprisingly easy. There was no shower of cosmic rays, no radioactive spider bites and no freak lab accident. The power was bestowed upon me by a more prosaic means: a YouTube video. Thanks to this video I can now remove and reinstall a bicycle tire with my bare hands, without any tools! GASP!
I had been unaware of how weak my tire changing technique was. A short time ago I broke a tire lever trying to install a particularly stubborn tire. Armed with my new power I was a able to remove and reinstall the same tire, on the same rim with my bare hands. Although I had previously read a description of this technique here but it didn’t really click with me until I saw this video. It is so surprisingly simple that you should immediately run to your bike and try it for yourself. GO NOW!
