    PISSFLAPS! [pt2- removable valve cores and other pretty things]

    i broke the top off a presta valve. which wasn't too annoying until i tried to pump the tyre up again and the pin in the center fell into the tyre.

    so that tyre's a write-off now.

    grrrr.

    lesson learnt.

    so my question is:
    does anyone know of any cheap [<£30], 650c tubular tyres with removable valve cores? [preferably with butyl tubes]

    Every pair of Conti sprinters I have ever glued had removable valve cores.
    I know that they're available in 650c size.

    i had a pair of conti la's. the 700 had a removable core, the 650 didn't.

    go figure.

    [before this post i was eyeing up the tufo's, i was just checking if anyonehad any other suggestions.]

    about a week ago i got a tufo jet 26" [and an s22 for the rear] from sjs cycles, and i must say i'm very impressed.

    way more grippy in the corners than vittoria rallies. i can just tip the bike into corners now with no worries of it sliding out from under me. and they make a really cool noise that i can't really describe....

    woo!
