inner tube rvc's

Postby skinnydog » Sat Oct 06, 2012 08:30 am

Please advise make of inner tube that DOES NOT have a removeable valve core. Been on michelins and vittorias website, but cant tell or get the right info. Been using conti's for a while but after several mishaps after punctures where the valve core has unscrewed on both spare inners whilst removing pump, am giving up on them.

Any advice apreciated :D

my advice is to tighten the valve cores correctly

only takes a few seconds, do it to new tubes as soon as you get them

all my tubes and tubs have removable cores, i use a screw on pump (lezyne), they do not come undone

new tubes seem to ship with the cores a bit loose, you *must* tighten them before use
