Any ideas on where to get a valve removal tool for presta valves? Extra valves needed too.....


Can't you just unscrew those with pliers?Small Ring

Haven't done it in awhile and I don't have a tube where I can look at it (I know all the rest of you are on your own time, but I'm at work...). But can't you just grab the very top of those with a pair of pliers and unscrew 'em? Seems like I used to do it to put Slime in.

Ya don't really need a 'tool',but the end of the threads are knurled to retain the nut. file and a pair of pliers at most.salvage stem parts from old tubes.
Is it a removable core??Rusty McNasty

Most presta valve tubes today do NOT have removable cores. Some of the better tubulars do, but nothing less than $40 does. I haven't seen removable presta cores on ANY tube in about 10 years here in the states.

Joe, I got my little tool from Tri-Zone. I got it so I could put the Tufo sealant in the Tufo tubular. This was a good plan but the Tufo tires just didn't last.
