I just picked up a new wheelset:

http://www.jensonusa.com/store/product.aspx?i=WH707A18

When i try to put in my old tubes, the vavle won't fit (it's the shradeur one or however it's spelt). It fits through the outer part of the rim but not the inner part. As far as i can tell, these aren't presta rims.... why would they be? What's the deal, do I have to tap these or something? I've gotten a new wheelset before but it was from my LBS and everything was done for me. Thanks.

If it is too small for schrader they are presta. The hole can be drill out.
