Look mom no valve stems

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Look mom no valve stems

https://bikerumor.com/newmen-advance...n-valve-stems/

Called the Aero Valve, itís a short tubeless valve stem, too short to protrude past the rimís profile. The included tool feeds the threaded nut in through the access hole on the outside, snugging the valve to the rim like normalÖjust, hidden.

You should revise the title to add "valve" before "stems"; I was wondering how the handlebar would be attached to the rest of the bike.

Eliminates the aerodynamic drag from valve stems ... I guess we should have seen this coming.

Eliminate the valve stem and it eliminates people arguing where the label or the inflation marking should be.

Sorry, there's no escaping that. The company video actually points out how to "properly" align the tire labels.

So it may be worse than I thought? Instead of a Schrader vs. Presta debate there is a third in the mix? And Dunlop doesn't count.

It depends. Are your leg hairs bladed or round?

Maybe go into the negative - can never underestimate the terrible turbulence caused by those unsightly stems and their hideous caps.

Another solution to a problem that doesn't exist. You know what they say about a fool and their money.

Sure, but you're not paying just to get a set of short stems. You also get a nice set of wheels to go with those stems, and the price is competitive with other brands.

DIY assembly into an enclosed hole? More widgets you have to keep track of? What could go wrong?
