I would like to add Stans to the tubes in my 29er, but cant find a tube that has a removeable valve core, which stans says is necessary.

Does anyone knowwho makes a 29er tube with removeable core?

Has anyone ever tried to use the Stans injector with a Presta tube, valve opened all the way, and a shraeder adapter? The stans may be too thick, but I was thinking it might work.

Thanks - Rob

The sealant will plug a regular presta valve. You can use 26" tubes in a 29" tire. No need for a presta/schrader adapter as the Injector comes with the valve fitting that is dual threaded to fit both types of valves.

Continental tubes supposedly have a removeable valve core. The Bontrager Superlight tubes I have have a removeable core (but the standard Bontrager ones I have don't). You can tell if a tube has a removeable valve core by the wrench flats on the stem just under the presta valve nut.
