Has anyone used/purchased the BeadBrakeR from It is a combination tool for changing MC tires.
It looks good on their web site.....
Price is $190.00.
I purchased their Cyclepump 12volt MC tire pump and EZAir gauge. Both are quality products and work well.

I wonder how well the BeadBreakR unit works for chaging tires.

No, but nifty idea! It seems a bit pricey though. Looks like something I could make using off-the-shelf parts from Cyclegear or Harbor Freight and home depot for around $50, but that's just how I roll.

This kit is advertised as something that could be used on the road. Having done this job in the garage, I can't imagine how much more difficult it would be to do on the road. 

I use a large bench vise to break the bead from the rim. Once the bead was broken, I ended up chasing the tire all over the garage floor trying to remove it from the rim. 

I realized that I needed something to hold the tire/rim steady. 
I took a 2 foot long piece of 2 X 4 lumber, cut a little 3/8" wide by 1/4" deep notch across the 4" side at the midpoint. I place a 12" long 1/2 inch socket extension in the notch and then clamp it and the 2 x 4 in the bench vice. 

I drop the tire/rim over the socket extension. The socket extension sticks up enough that you can use it as a pivot point for the tire irons. It holds the tire/rim in place well enough so that I can work with the tire irons. It is not fun but it works.

Since I already had the vice, socket extension and some odd pieces of 2 X 4, it didn't cost me anything.

Just another option.
