    Presta valve and schraeder ?

    Quick question, my new 29er came equipped with presta valves and I have a brand new schraeder valve spare tube in my camel bak.
    if I get a flat will I be able to use the spare tube in the same rims that came on the bike ?
    thanks in advance !

    I guess you'll have to sell the bike now.

    Sometimes rims have a plastic insert that can be removed to allow schraeder values to fit.
    Duct tape iz like teh Force. It has a Lite side and a Dark side and it holdz the Universe together.
