    I’ve used the Superstar ones as a cheaper option.

    I’ve not got Stans ones… not sure what mine are I got them for £5 from a mate when my wheels arrived without any.

    Just knock up a “seal” out of an old bit of inner tube, works for me.

    I’ve used Shimano and Specialized tubeless valves on them with no issues.

    Are you using sealant?

    Roval ones work too. But I didn’t have good results with Mavic.

    Cut the valve from an old tube, do up tight.

    Yeah, Mavic ones are shaped for the UST rims, suspect they wouldnt’ play nice with Stan’s rims.

    Do you have to use Stans valves with these as I can’t get them to hold air with my current valves?

    I’m using Superstar ones with my Flow’s. No problems

    The lump of rubber around the valve can be a problem which is why Stan designed his to be flat here. YMMV.

    Thanks everyone, I’ve been using 819’s so maybe I just need some non mavic one’s.

    top tip , if your having issues with valves sealing ….

    dod o mastic in the hole and stick the valve through.

    Never had a problem with a valve cut out of an old inner tube, though have had to get a pair of grips out to properly tighten the lock ring thing.

    Edit: Had a pair of specialized ones a while back, rubbish as you couldn’t remove the valve core!
