Bike valves are identical internals between Schrader and Presta minus the locking nut on Presta. It's not on a spring it's just air. I've pulled many 'slimed' shraders.

Also the locking nut at the base of the stem on prestas is nice with certain hand pumps or with CO2 vs Schrader.

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

Most brands carbon bikes are stronger in every way to their aluminium counterparts.

Technically the 5010 classifies as a "trail" bike. Think rowdy XC. Where as the Bronson is more like an XC enduro bike or what we call "all mountain", and the Nomad a full enduro bike or XC Downhill bike. 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.

linvillegorge Tubeless setup was finally a success and it looks like the afternoon storms will miss Evergreen today for the first time this year it feels like. I'm gonna go ride!

robotfood99 Have you tried hair spray? Let it dry for a few seconds and it will act like weak glue. That always worked for me.
