Are you checking pressure with the pump gauge while inflating the tire OR are you measuring pressure after inflation with a separate gauge?

Trying to use the pump gauge while inflating. Also I was able put on the GP4000s without tools by giving the tires a little stretch before trying to put them on.

Chris,

Would a 48mm SRAM valve extension work with this latex tube on a Flo 60?

The description says: Valve core: Not removable.

I am planning to run latex race tubes so I'm looking for options on those.

I'm able to inflate but the gauge will not provide a reading, it goes up momentarily while pumping but then returns to zero.
I'll give it a go with RVC tubes and the internal extension to see what happens. Do you think if I used teflon tape on the external it would make a difference?

What valve length would your recommend to fit the Flo 90 front and rear disc combo? I am only looking to carry one tube size for the two wheels.

hey Cyberjunkie21: i have a few sets of the Pro4 Service Course tires as well. Wondered how they would fit on my FLO 90-rear. Do they spread out beyond the width of the wheel at all? I need as narrow as I can get to properly fit my Cervelo P3C.
