I have both 50mm rims and 60mm rims. I use 60mm presta valves with the 50mm, and 80mm valves with the 60mm rims. For 50mm rims the 60mm valves are long enough for pump and inflator heads.

I mistakenly purchased 700x25-32 inner tubes. I've always used 700x18-25 inner tubes. My tire is 700x25. Am I better off using the smaller, or larger inner tube?
