Tubeless Valves Question
Does anyone make tubeless prest valves that fit rims drilled for schrader?
I’ve converted a wheelset using Stans tape & valves but have had to bodge a fix (using a washer & piece of old innertube) to prevent the valve being pushed through the hole. Whilst it seems to be holding out, I’d prefer a better fix – have ordered a couple of valve hole reducers from JRA but these only resolve the external issue of the valve stem moving about.
Any ideas or does anyone make these valves with a wider end?Posted 4 years agoandyrmMember
These are the ones I use:
Done 5 wheelset conversions on DH/AM bikes with these in the last year, all working perfectly still.
Also makes it easy to do problematic conversions as you can take the core out for initial seating/inflation to get lots more air through quicker.

One of these? I have them in my wheels – though using tubes at present – and should think they’d work just fine with a tubeless valve. The latex ought to seal any small gaps.Posted 4 years ago
Scaredypants- those valves are schrader & I want to continue using presta.
aracer – yep, those ones. I assumed they drop in to the rim from the outside so don’t influence where the valve comes through the inner wall? Will have a look when they arrive.
Klunk – they look the job, will order a pair when I get home. Cheers.Posted 4 years ago
