CyclingTips Digest: How SRAM Was Built, Silca Hot Wax, Internal-Gear Hubs, and More
@thegoodflow: I don't know why you're so hung up on this dude. My comments are perfectly reasonable given the subject article. Let me try a different tack. Let's say you weren't the obvious MTB God that you are and had some issues with presta like a lot of us lowly joeys. Would you spend the 40$ on "improved" presta valves, or switch to Schrader?

@Augustus-G: yes, presta was the solution for narrowing road rims in the early years of less weight above all else. But now that rims are wider and made from stronger materials, the cons far outweigh any benefits. I don't know why people still put up with them.

@thegoodflow: maybe I am doing it wrong, but if the only pro you have for presta is that the little spring pressure on Schrader is too hard to overcome, you might want to find an easier hobby than mountain biking..

@thegoodflow: I'd gladly take the increased pressure to overcome the spring on Schrader vs all the problems I've had with presta trailside. Having to be super careful not to bend the valve with pumps that attach directly, or if the pump has a hose, then I have a 50/50 chance of the valve coming out when I remove the hose.

@N-60: I think that's why they've stuck around. People associate them with high end bikes so they must be better right?

@thegoodflow: I'm comparing in regards to setting up tubeless tires. I remove the valve, seat the bead, add sealant, replace the valve then pump to desired pressure. Way easier with Schrader.

@N-60: more prone to clogging, damage than Schrader. More restrictive air flow means harder to seat tires.

Any reason why we still use presta valves instead of Schrader on modern wide mtb rims?

MTB on a Budget: Where to Spend & Where to Save on Mountain Bike Clothing - Part 1
@Skooks: used to love them, but then just bit the bullet and splurged on darn tough socks because of all the hype. I'm a convert now. Fit is a lot better and my feet doesn't get nearly as funky as with the Costco ones.
