I can't seem to be able to find valve stems for tubless wheels (819 Mavic) LBS dosen't have anything. Know of a place to get them on-line? Any type better then the other?
Thanks Jack

Mavic valves are your only real choice. Nashbar has them. They are not cheap.

LBS or Stan

Go to notubes.com. I think they were $8 apiece and have removable cores.
Your LBS can order the Mavic version and as Shiggy said they ain't cheap. Stan's sells his version. I have both kinds. The Mavic version has a rectangular rubber base that fits well down into the spoke valley of Mavic rims. The Stan's version has a round rubber base that is a more universal kind of fit. Although I have some of the Stan's I haven't used them cause I'm using his rim strips.

Eclipse valves are a better option

I don't know if you can get them in the States, but the Eclipse valve with removable core has a rectangular base, fits neatly in Mavic rims and allows you to add sealant without removing the bead from the rim. I use these on my X3.1s as well as a set of Eclipse-converted 717 rims and they work really well.
