Tubs with longer valves

    I've recently acquired a pair of old Reynolds Cirrus wheels. They have a slightly deeper section than traditional box rims and the regular valves (eg on Continental Competition tubs) don't stick quite far enough through to let my trackpump get a good grip on them. Screwing valve extensions in, on the other hand, seems excessive and looks stupid.

    Does anyone know of good quality tubs with slightly longer valve stems?

    Thanks

    Thanks, but I think you might have misread my question: I'm looking for tubular tyres, not inner tubes.

    Can you not pump them up with the extentions on then remove the extentions while using them?

    I can't think of any long valve tubs. There must be some though!

    That would be good, but the valve extensions I have fit in place of the regular valve core so swapping them deflates the tyre completely. Is there another kind of valve extension which just screws over the existing valve?

    Briank, I can honestly say I do not know. I would of thought they do, try ringing Ribble or something and asking them.
