Valve Extender Question

Postby dino019 » May 11th, 2012, 5:34 pm

I have a 60/90 set of wheels arriving in a few weeks & I'm trying to decide on valve extender length. Currently my wheels are both 40mm. So I use tubes with a 60mm presta. Would I be okay just getting a couple of 42mm Topeak valve extenders? To me, that seems perfectly fine option for both wheels. I ask because Topeak says that the 42mm extender is only for wheels 60mm and under. They do make a longer extender.....73mm. But putting a 73mm extender on a 60mm presta, for my 90mm rear, seems like overkill to me. Plus it would make training/rides easier if I could with similar part lengths.........instead of carrying 2 different tube lengths & 2 diferent extender lenghts.

Thoughts?? Opinions??

Hi Chris and Jon,

On the topic of valves, what length valve stem do you recommend for the Flo Disc? I'm hoping to pull the trigger on one in Pre-Order 2 and am tossing up between a few different brands of latex tubes which have different length valve stems. Need to strike that balance between being long enough to poke through the rim and short enough to fit the pump crack pipe (or even pump head if possible) in the hole!

Cheers.
