Default Re: Motorized Bicycle Take a Tip...Leave a Tip

Good to know, thanks RC. I'm down to one last Presta valve tubed tire in my garage, everything else has Schrader valves. It won't be long before I switch out that last one, either... I hate fiddling around with Presta valves. The bike shop I won't go to anymore put them on my wife's bike when she dropped it in for a check and tune up a couple of years ago (just after she got it), and insisted they were better valves. They might make sense on a high-end racing bike or some thing, but on a MTB with the rim already having a Schrader size hole for the valve stem it made no sense, just added a couple of bucks per tire expense (the true reason for installing them I suspect).


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
