    Question Valve Extenders

    I'm going from butyl to latex for my aero wheels and will need valve extenders as they don't make any long valves for latex tubes (at least not that I can find). Which type of extenders and why. I don't know anything about them. Removeable core why or why not?
    Sorry should have posted this in another forum. I searched for threads on this earlier and couldn't find any, but now I see there are some threads on it.

    the ones for removable cores are much better. you can inflate to an accurate pressure more easily, and since you can close them you don't have to worry about dirt getting inside.

    I just use a schrader valve adapter on my 48mm stem presta tube. Works fine on my 38mm wheels. No extenders needed.
