Road Cycling “It 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.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Vittoria Pit Stop

Anybody using this? They claim it works with Valve extenders. Any experience using it with Valve Extenders?

One problem I see is you can't fly with it, and I want to carry it to a race where I won't be able to count on ready access to the Wheel truck. I guess I can UPS ground ship it to the Hotel ahead of time.

I guess it would depend on the extender. Are you using the Zipp type extender or the Tufo/Vittoria type. Difference is valve core must be removed with the Tufo/Vittoria and replaced on the extender vs. open in the Zipp type. I would think that it would work with either except for the fact that the little knurled nut on the valve core restricts flow in the Zipp extender.

If its that big a concern then have you considered using a sealant already in a tire, like Tufo or Stan's?

I use the Pit Stop stuff... it works very well. It's nice to just have to carry a can of that on rides rather than a flat kit. (I run tubulrs 90% of the time) You do need an extender that moves the valve to the end of the extender though.

Thanks for that info, I was lucky and that is the type of extenders I have. I just wasn't sure I liked the idea of the Zipp extender and having to leave the valve opened inside of it.
