Hi Folks ...
b4 I get yelled at, I did a search and found the last discussion went back to '03. What is the current preference?
A riding buddy says Presta ... if you're on the road you might meet more people with this tube touring that you might buy one if you need one . He also carries the brass adaptor and rubber washers for helping others out if it's a rim (valve hole) or pump issue.
I'm still new and ride in remote areas where folks are more likely to have a compressor or auto style tire pump. What issues on availability of buying one valve type tube vs the other in small towns on a C2C?
So chime in, please! I've got Schraders on my Specialized Crossroads Elite Hybrid, running Conti TT 2K's 700x28c. My stocker tires are Specialized Armadillo 700x38c. I plan to exchange my Crank Bros. Power Pump for a Topeak Road Morph ... don't know if this makes a difference in terms of tearing the valve stem or other issues?
