Keeping a Schrader adapter on one wheel gives you options should you ever need to fill up at, say, a non-biking friend's house, or at a gas station. I keep such an adapter on all my presta-equipped bikes for just that reason. The weight of the adapter is minimal. It's convenient to have.

Got one on each wheel just so my dice valve caps will fit.

Yup, brass one, and I manage losing one from time to time.
