Valve core remover recommendation?

I'm screwing up my courage and trying tubulars again 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.

Not the Origin8 one!

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!

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