    removable presta valve cores

    Just a couple questions. Does anyone make any clincher tubes that have removable valve cores? Would be a lot easier to install those instead of the hunt for 60mm valve stem tubes.

    Second question. Does anyone have a secret tool for removing/installing the valve cores. A cheepo plastic one came with my Tufo valve extenders, but it is flimsy plastic that doesn't really seat the extender or the valve core. I am positive one of the spoke nipple wrenches would fit, but I tried my black park spoke wrench that fits DT spokes and it was a no go.
    Cyclists really need to learn a little Rule #5.

    Try to find some old Spinergy Rev X valve extenders. They work great. You can open and close the valve when inflating.

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    I have some HED Jets (60 and 90) and my extensions leak, or don't fill at all, and you can't get a good pressure reading . The TNI extension lets you put the core on the end of the extension, has o-rings, and same price as the cheaper non-o-ring ones. Figure it's worth a shot.

    Good to hear from you! How'd you fare last year's RftR? Hot as blazes with headwinds to boot! Managed to get my boss her first century though but it was a tough one.

    Haven't posted much lately, probably only a handful in the last year or two. Job keeps me busy and happy, still get to ride frequently.

    Give a holler if you're in the Denver area. . .

    Cheers!

    I have found that a pair of needle-nosed pliers works well if you don't have one of the little plastic tools. I have both the Tufo tool and the Conti one.
