Tubeless valves
« on: April 15, 2021, 02:25:13 AM »
Comes up every now and them, I use and have always advocated 90 deg ones for ease of inflation but has occurred to me that since going tubeless the only time I air up is once, when fitting tyres.
Weekly checking is out the window now, very rare I do, no pressure loss ever on any of mine

So about tp do my ebikes too and just got these from Amazon
Not only because they’re cheap but can’t see why they won’t work on moto conversions too, esp Guzzi cast wheels, I had 3 goes on them with off the shelf before finding suitable valves with rubber seal on the air side
These look like they’re made for those wheels



They come in all manner of colours, weigh nothing
Did I mantion they’re cheap ?

I am surprised Martin that they call them bicycle stems, being most serious mountain bikes at least have high pressure presta  valves fitted.  Having said that, never having had tubeless on my mountain bikes I don't actually know whether they use schraeder or presta vaklves on a tubeless setup.

Either way, they look the bees knees for doing a tubeless setup on a motorbike.

Both available so you could use presta on motorbike if you were that serious
Schraeder good enough for me but presta maybe even lighter for when the milligram counts

make sure they are strong enough... I like the design, but the seem anodized which means aluminum. Though will likely work and last, but motorcycles go much faster than bikes (as far I know  :azn: )

Makes you wonder what MM 93 ‘s valves are made of, he tends to go fast
Rest of field, just light alloy, AFAIK
