Tubeless valves

I am contemplating changing to tubeless with my Anyroad bike. Right now it has Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires (700cx42) on it and I am thinking of getting some BG's Rock And Roads and I need valves.
I am not a fan of Presta valves and would prefer Schrader valves particularly here in Cambodia. Are there any Tubeless Schrader valves?

AFAIK - no.
Tubeless valves needs to be pulled tight against the rim.
And I’ve never seen any with Schräder valves with threaded stems.

Totally unrelated. That derailleur is about at its limit

You can screw on Schrader adapters to your Presta valve. I always carry one in my saddle bag.

The derailleur is definitely in the cross chaining gears.

Stan's makes them.Apparently they make two different types for their Hugo rims which came with two different size valve holes. OP might be able to use one or the other. It would be a $16 experiment, plus shipping to Cambodia.

Yup, it is cross chained I did set it up using Shimano's big-big + 2 and that setup is nigh unto bullet proof. Also thanks for the Schrader valve listing from Stan's.

If I was you, I would take a tube with a Schrader valve and do the ghetto tubeless thing with it.

Just split it open along the circumferential seam, mount it open faced (between the tire and the wheel) and then trim off the excess. (best with a very light weight tube - this might make it hard to make your bead seat).

One nice thing about Schrader , is that it is easy to unscrew the valve and put in more sealant.
