I misplaced my tire lever and it's very hard to change the tube of my mountain bike without a tire lever. I'm looking for alternatives if a tire lever is not available.
What I've found so far are:
- Carve your own tire lever out of wood. (Did not try this, have no wood available)
- Use the handle of a spoon. (Didn't work, spoon bent and scratched rim tape)
- Carve your own out of the plastic handle of a knife. (Worked, but kinda ruined handle of knife and could be dangerous)
Are there any other alternatives in case this would occur again or if I encounter a similar situation on the road?
