Presta tubes are an amazing advancement and improvement to the wheel world HOWEVER; sometimes it seems that because of the adaptor on the valve, I,m not getting proper reading on the pressure gauge .
Aside from the fact that presta rims don't take "normal" tubes, you have to find and carry special adapters, carry special tubes, they don't work with pressure gauges, and cost more than regular tubes... are there any other "amazing advancements and improvements"?
Seriously though, is there any single advantage over regular tubes?
