I was searching for replacement presta valve cores for my Stan's valves and found these. Anyone ever heard of them?

I got tired of drilling out my rims for ghetto schrader tubeless; finally gave in and just use presta with a schrader adapter. This might be my ticket back to all-schrader land. ;)

Just make an air chuck with a silca head.
Buy an air chuck with the Schrader head, cut it off, plug the silca head in it's place, cinch down with a clamp, presto--done.

I've gone completely to presta because of it. No more adapters, either.

Do you like Schrader that much?

My issue has always been checking the tire pressure on a presta. Most pumps only give an increment in 5psi chunks. So, how does someone check to see if their tire is at 18psi, 22psi, etc?

Hm, I guess the problem is your choice of pump and the read-out, then? Or am I missing something? My pump has less than 5psi read-outs.

What pump are you using? Maybe I'll add it to my wish list. ;)

It's just a Serfas FP-200 SE Tower pump that I won at a raffle.
