Also, they make extended valves if your tubulars have replaceable valve cores. The latter is nicer, you can shut them after you pump up the tires.

The former relies on either you removing the extender and carefully tightening the valve nib thing or you hope the air pressure keeps the valve shut. Hit a big bump just right (or knock your valve tip somehow) and you may find yourself a bit low on air.
