    Source of Presta Long Valve Tubes?

    I am building up a set of wheels using Velocity Deep V rims. I have discovered that finding Presta long stem tubes is tough.

    So, I would appreciate someone pointing me in the right direction.

    Thank you,

    Tom O'Hara

    Thanks for posting that though.

    and this is in the MTB thread... How in the hell I didn't put 2+2 together and realize that's what he needed is beyond me. I must not have been completely awake at that point.

    Btw... here's a presta tube with a 34mm valve. I dunno if that's long enough for what you need, but it's about the best I've found so far.
