I hate paying extra for long valve tubes, I hate buying a valve extender twice a month because I keep losing it. I am a cheapskate on a $2000 bike. I'm sure some of you can relate. Anyway, I cut the valve off an old punctured long valve tube and tapped the end closest to the rubber with a 12-24 tap. Instant and free extender. It works great. I plan on making about a dozen of them from all my old tubes so there will always be one lying around somewhere. Hope this saves somebody a buck.
