|Subject: 90 degree vale stems Tue Dec 15, 2020 8:22 am|| |
OK, so reading the thread here on 90' valve stems, I see that it's gonna be a NO GO for those vale stems. It is cumbersome to regulate air in the GRiSO tires. The front is really a convoluted trick show, but with a little fineness and the right chuck it is do-able. The rear wheel is easy. I get my valve at about 5:30 or 6:30 position, then I snake the long chuck down thru the spokes from about 2 or 3 spoke positions counter clockwise. I've included pix for reference.

Mine came with 90 degree on front so I 'assumed' front isn't a problem (I've never had any with it)...I'll try and fit same on rear when I've got time ...pic below[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Mine also came with 90 degree stem on the front (2014 SE model). Straight stem on rear.

The front all come with the 90 degree.
The back is not because the lumps that house the rim wires are too close to one another so the valve won't sit flush.
They do make aftermarket ones that have a smaller diameter at the base so it will fit.
I'm putting one of those on my next tire change...
