Hi, I was riding this weekend on my tubeless wheels and I managed to crack the presta valve installed with my tubeless setup, luckily I had an extra tube.

The question is: Do they sell the valves? and If so any recommendations on which are stronger. (is this something one should carry as a spare on the camelpack!)
How about the sealant any suggestion on the brand quality thickness, quantity etc... The one my bike had looked like Milk, but I've seen some other green sealants not sure what the difference is?

Any suggestions on where to purchase valves, sealant and a C02 power inflator would be appreciated!

Thanks,

Makilo

If you are going to use a sealant, you should probably consider Stan's valves so you can remove the core to put in sealant without dismounting the tire. Stan's sealant is probably what you have if it's milky. You will see mixed reviews between Stan's sealant and Slime (the green stuff). You will see reviews of both working and both not working. I suspect that the tire and environment you ride (temperature or other factors) are what would effect which is better. All of my riding buddies in East TN use Stan's with great success.

I'm not sure about Slime but you should never use CO2 with Stan's. It will cause the sealant to hard instantly preventing it from ever sealing a puncture (and leaving lots of "boogers" inside your tire.
