I'm using the HED Deep & Jet2000 wheels. I'm encountering the following problem: when inflating the tire (using the valve extenders for the Deep & the Jet2000) , the pump gauge shows 0 pressure all the time, although the tire is being inflated ( I can feel it , and there's no puncutre in there - the air stays in for days). Please note I've checked the pump with regular tires (w/o valve extenderes) & it works great.

I'd be happy to know of any recommendations how to overcome this problem.

is there a check valve in the extenders? I know on the valves of my tubeless mtb rims there is a small valve in there to help prevent leakage. just a thought!
