<------ This guy mounts them.
Attached is a sketch of how to make your very own CABB to break beads. Requires nothing more than a few pieces of scrap 2x4 and some screws. Only the one board is fastened to anyone, so there is a bit of juggling required as you apply load to the lever... an assistant makes it much easier but I do it by myself.
To remove tire:
Let air out of tire. remove Schrader valve or drill a couple 1/4"ish holes in the tire.
Use the CABB. The holes will allow air to come out and the tire to compress enough to get it off the rim.
Grab your 3 tire irons and rim protectors and wrestle that sucker off.
To install the tire:
Grab your 3 tire irons and rim protectors and wrestle that sucker on.
Set the bead. Wratchet strap around the circumference of the tire. Hit it with some soapy water to help bead seal. Wratchet, wratchet, wratchet… center of tire gets pulled toward center of rim, edges push out against rim making tight seal.
Blast it with air compressor to set bead.
TIP- remove Schrader valve to set bead. Lets more air through.
Sometimes I have a hard time setting the bead if tire is flattened from shipping. I get the tire on the rim, take it to like a used tire shop and they guy sets them both for me for 5 bucks.
Why do I do it? Because I'm a cheap SOB.
Watch the youtube videos. It takes some time to learn how to use the tire irons. Those tires stretch more than you may be comfortable until you get used to it. This won't make sense until you try it, but take SMALL "bites" with the irons as you work your way around the tire.
Use some common sense to protect your wheel when using the CABB
