    Transition Revolution 28 29er rims

    Why the use of schrader in these wheels? I'm not saying its a bad as I have these on my Transam 29 and the rear wheel has taken some hard bits where the ardent bottomed out to the rim and no flats.

    I have no clue. It's partially what made me get a new wheelset. I hate inflating schrader tubes.

    Someone told me its cuz DH and DJ bikes typically use schrader and that's what Transition does good, I have no idea though if that is true or not. And even if it is true, how hard is it to just drill a smaller hole? I suppose that's simplyfing it, but still

    You can still run a presta valve in them....I'm running presta front and rear on mine. No biggie.

    No problem running presta valve tubes or tubeless valves in a schrader rim. We drill for schrader so you will never be stuck with a tube you can't use. Get a flat on the trail and all you and your buddies have is a schrader tube... then you will be cursing those presta drilled rims.

    Just saying...

    Makes sense. Do you suggest using a grommet in the rim for a presta?
