    Presta/Schraeder Pump for Dunlop Valve

    Is it possible to pump a Dunlop valve with a Presta/Schraeder Pump ? (Here in India we are using Dunlop Valves for bicycle tubes). Thanks in advance for your replies

    I had Dunlop valves on my very first (and second) bike when I was kid in the UK in the late nineteen-fifties. From what I remember, I think a Presta pump might be OK on a Dunlop valve, but a Schræder certainly wouldn't, without an adapter.

    My mini-pump has two heads. The instructions state that the same head serves Presta and Dunlop. The other head serves Schrader.
