    Issue with S35 wheelset valvestems

    I recently picked up my Ripley with the alloy S35 wheels (the bike is amazing!). I found a strange issue with the stock valves, which is that the threading on the main stem of the valve doesnít seem to be compatible with my hand pump (Crankbros Klic) or my sealant injector (Stans). In both cases, the diameter of the valve stem is just slightly too large for those things to thread on. Anyone else have this issue?

    I ordered a set of Muc Off valve stems, and Iíll install those today and see if they work properly.

    I haven't had any issue with my S35 wheel stems. I use a pneumatic inflator so thats not telling, however, i have had to use a screw on c02 inflator once on the trail without any issue. Also bought some blingy ano valve caps and they threaded on fine.

    Do you have the issue with both stems?

    Following up to confirm that the Muc Off valve stems work perfectly with the S35 rims. They come with a few different rubber seal options, but the default ones that are installed on the valve stem match the seals used on the Ibis valve stems. Threaded tools attach to the Muc Off valves just fine, but do not work on the Ibis valve stems.
