Help finding Long Valve Tubular tiresonrhodes

Does anyone know where I can order long valve tubular tires from? I have a Campy Shamal wheel that needs a new tubular, the nearest shop that I know where I can get a tire of this sort is 1.5 hours away. needless to say I would rather just mail order the thing and have it delivered to me. Any mail order companies out there that people know of? Instead of replying here, just reply to me at i dont know of any tubies with 50mm valves.

use an extender and wrap the valve with teflon tape so it doesnt leak.

i can pump with to 200 psi with no probs

Yes, but it still doesn't work as nice. The shop I went to had Conti, Vitorria, and Michelin in a 50mm vavle (FYI)

Try Performance. I think they have 60MM long valve Conti's. I know Michelin makes them, my LBS stocks them. Try to avoid the ultra light long valves, they tend to puncture very easily around the valve stem. I gave up on them and went back to butyl.
I just checked the Performance catalog and Performance has a 60mm long valve for $6.99. I don't know if these are any good, but the Performance Forte tires are of good quality...
Sorry, I missed the Tubular tire NMDINOSAUR
