One last look back at the bike season. Was fortunate enough to make 5 trips up to the Whistler Bike Park this Summer. Such a blast!

Sweet. I'm about to wash my hands of presta valves.

But with how all the bikes ride nowadays the lines are super blurred beyond full scale downhill and weight weenie XC. A Nomad with the right build will climb great, and a 5010 with the right build could handle lift service.

|Nivek||Because you'll never be able to run the rims tubeless. And presta is a closeable valve.|

|linvillegorge||Talk me out of drilling out my rims to accept a schrader valve. I just see prestas as a wholly unnecessary royal pain in the ass and I'm honestly not seeing any real advantages. The schrader to presta adapter is an even bigger PITA than the presta itself. Why not just go with the valve type that virtually all other pneumatic tires in America uses? I can see using prestas on road bikes with the super narrow rims,but MTB rims are plenty wide enough to both accommodate a bigger valve and leave plenty of material for rigidness.|
