I'm screwing up my courage and trying tubulars again :rolleyes: which means I'll need to unscrew valve cores to put in sealant. Ok, brain trust of the Paceline, any recommendations for which core remover to get? And any tips for do's and don'ts about removing the core and putting in sealant? Merci.

The Stans No Tube is well made and has stood up to years of use without rounding off or any visible wear. Highly recommended. Much better than the DT Swiss I'd used before.

+1 --- I've only owned the Stan's, so I can't speak to others....but it seems well made and does what its supposed to...I can't imagine ever being unhappy with it.

The Park version works well for me.

I wouldn't stress about this too much, it is a simple tool that does a simple task. I have a valve cover on one of our sledding tubes that has a core remover on the other side. Even that simple set up gets the job done well enough.

Stan's one has always worked for me.

I have this:

It might trump the Stan's one if you have small hands but otherwise it's PITA ;)

I always lose the proper tool and just use some needle nose pliers gentlyish.

Those are the ones to get. The closed end fits the valve insert and the open end fits the flats on the valve extension.

Accept no substitute - they're the best product Zipp makes!

Park tool, for sure.. super light, works great.. keep it in my pocket tool pouch, along with fixit stix and a mini pump. And weed and munchies.

Buy as many as you have tool bags so you don't become stranded without one.

Got anything that looks like this in your toolbox?

The Zipp one is the best. They come with wheels, so if you know someone who has multiple Zipp wheels, they are likely to have extras. LBSs that sell Zipp wheels are also like to have extras, so no need to spend money on them.

I just use a 4.5 mm wrench to remove the valve core. It's small enough that it's very difficult to go all Ahnold on it. Remove it, squirt in your favorite sealant, replace. Piece of cake. Well, except for the occasional mess wherein sealant sprays everywhere. :mad:

They're awesome
Don't round off with use...
