    Some tire/rim combos can be a bear, especially when tires are new.

    I highly recommend one of these. It'll get any tire on with little effort.

    Does it fit in a seat bag? I found these wide Park tire levers that work pretty well.

    I still much prefer getting a flat on the HED rims.

    No, it's not really a travel tool. Could stick it in a jersey pocket. But it's more for home use.
