tyre lever snapped any substitute I can use?

Trying to swap tyres around on my two bikes and damn the gatorskin tyres are so hard to take off literally snapped one of the tyre levers the second one I put in. Would appreciate any other substitutes I could maybe use. Watched a few vids on tyre replacement and they make it look so easy...


My mum's teaspoons always worked for me. :okay:

I don't think it would. Make sure you are only nipping the bead of the tyre and don't get too greedy when selecting where to insert your second spoon. Works a treat even with gatorskins. :okay:
Yep or you have possibly not got the rim sat in deep enough at the bottom of the wheel.

I used them too. Tyre levers were a revelation to me, in my mid-late teens. I had no idea there was a proper tool for the job.
