    I have presta valves. No valve cover for me.
    um.... this thread puzzles me.
    Is the next thread "show us your spokes" or "show us your seat bracket"?

    Maybe seat bracket, or bar end caps... Grips, anything.

    Oh but they do. Purely Custom makes these. The presta ones serve no purpose except to add color to my black bike (one of several black bikes I own). They make all kinds of other stuff that is absolutly useless but colorful nevertheless.

    Only Presta valve covers I've seen are shaped like rockets. Can't remember where, but I'm sure some results would come up in google.

    I have skull covers, and interestingly, the presta to schrader adaptors I had to get cost more than twice as much as the cover's themselves.

    I worked at a bike shop a while ago, and I don't ever remember seeing one break.

    i don't have any valve covers. except on my cars. and those are just nickel-plated steel. unless you mean the ones under the hood; those are cast aluminium. i guess i could take pictures of those if you want. but you probably don't.

    I have genuine Harley Davidson chrome caps on my schraeder valves. They were a present last year.

    My presta valves have black caps.

    I think I had a heavy one give me a flat tire on my car due to the weight slowly breaking the valve. For that reason I have not used one ever since. Now I dont think you will have a high RPM on a bicycle to quite do that same thing, but on a mountain bike you have alot of shock from bumps and landings so I still have a fear of breaking a valve.

    My brand new bike had a flat 2nd time I took it out, was a defective valve slowly leaking area, I am so paranoid of these valve stems so fragile, esp the presta type (what I have)

    But it would be pretty cool to have the blinky ones that make a cirlcle of light on your commuter if you run at night, toss that flashing LED spoke thing on that spells out words and your all set.

    this is why i use bolt-in valves on my cars. that, and most rubber pull-through stems are only good for speeds up to around 100 mph.
