Tyre Valves

Postby cat funt » Sun Dec 30, 2012 14:54 pm

Had a search through the forums but couldn't find the answer

Is it possible to fit inner tubes with a PRESTA valve to a wheel already fitted with a SCHRADER valve-and vice versa ? :?

So long as you take the old tubes out first then yes, no problem at all.

Make sure to cut the old tubes up before throwing them into next door's garden. Or tie them to a some branches and use them as a catapult to fling things at passing chavs. By things I mean bombs. Or old people.

HTH

You can fit presta valves to a schrader drilled rim ( hole reducer fittings are available, recommened and cheap) but a schrader valve will not fit in a presta hole.

Perhaps it is a beverage of somewhat stronger content than Lambrini then. :lol:
