- Snapping Valves
Just out of interest, does anyone else have this problem. Setting up tubeless at the weekend, one wheel goes up fine, the second one, not so. Just trying to remove the valve core and the little round bit on top of the valve completely unscrews. I was using pliers but didn’t expect this to happen. Then, went and got a replacement. Same thing. Am I applying too much torque? Or something else?Posted 4 years agoBadlyWiredDogSubscriber
You shouldn’t be turning the round bit on top at all when you’re taking the valve core out, the lower section of the removable core has flats on the side which are what you need to turn.
There’s a little Park Tool that costs a fiver or something and works really well. You can screw the bit you unscrewed back on btw.Posted 4 years ago
