No good deed goes unpunished...SnowBlind
Mar 27, 2003 8:28 AM
On a ride a few weeks ago I helped out a rider with Shraeder valves and had to flip the S/P converter over on the Backburn pump.
Fast foward to Monday. Had to fix a flat in the morning and had to flip it back. Shoulda taken my gloves off, cause I dropped it in a ditch and could not find it.
Any idea where I could get a replacement?

Try www.thethirdhand.com or www.bikesusa.com; both have lots of small parts.
Or, head down to your LBS, as they may have something that'll work. If worse comes to worse, a stack of washers will allow the rubber gasket to seal around presta valves, though you'd be SOL for schraeders.

Call them: 800-776-5677 (navigate to option 6 I think)

I wore out my grommet on my TP2 and they sent me a new one gratis. Actually two on request because the presta threads tend to tear up the rubber.

Their Customer service is wonderful.

For that matter if you need a part for your Gyro or Bell helmet call: 800-456-2355. Bell owns Blackburn and Gyro(and?) and has applies the same terrific customer service for all their products.
