what the deal with the valve extender?I've used the 2008 model - more or less the same as 2012 I would have thought.
Nice sold wheel - bomb-proof in my experience.
Personally the disadvantages (crosswinds,weight and remembering the valve extender etc) outweighed the benefits (I don't TT and although they may be faster I didn't really notice).
Get some Ksyrium SL's
I understand what you say but once you inflate the tyre with the extender, how you take it out, do you leave the core of the valve tube open since it is inside the carbon ferrying?You don't use tubes with really long valves (too heavy) so you need a valve extender which screws on the top of the presta valve to inflate the tyre and then unscrews.
You need to take one of these every journey if you want to inflate your tyres after a puncture
I used intermediate length valves - you could see the top inside the fairing and it was easy to screw it down with a needle.I understand what you say but once you inflate the tyre with the extender, how you take it out, do you leave the core of the valve tube open since it is inside the carbon ferrying?
Also another question is, I usually use latex tube which I have with my Vitorria Evo Corsa tyre and the latex valve is long. I believe long enough for the cosmic SL 52 deep section without extender. Would it be smarter to use it, or to use another latex with shorter valve (if that kind of thing exist) and the extender as you said or to use a regular tube with short valve and extender as you said.
that's why I have the Lezyne alloy floor drive pump with a screw on valve to attach to the presta as you pump it so it can work well with this extension size.I used intermediate length valves - you could see the top inside the fairing and it was easy to screw it down with a needle.
I'd use what you have - my only problem is that the track pump I use needed more than 10mm of the valve protruding to get a good air-tight grip.
