Rambler wheels and Presta valves

edited June 2012 in Rambler
Just went to check the air pressure before my ride tonight and noticed that I've got Presta valves, not Schrader. My air pump has a gauge/adapter for both, so no worries there. My question is...I jumped the gun and purchased spare tubes already with Schrader style valves. Will these rims accommodate them? I read some where that not all wheels are able to. :?


  • You'll have to drill out the rims if you want to use Schrader valves.

  • Can you tell me if the Cobra Linear replacement tube I purchased is a Presta or a Schrader? of if it's universal? If there is such a thing.

    Thanks for your advice on drilling too, although I'm not likely to get that extreme.
  • I did a Google search, and it appears that the cobra tube is also a schrader valve. According to this site
  • Thanks for looking into that for me...often forget how easy it is to find such info. Showing my age :oops: Guess I'll have to find someone with a BMX bike to take the two tubes. Guess I should have looked into the TerraTrike site on this long ago.
  • Not a problem, sorry they won't work out for you.
