    Where to find fully threaded Shrader valves/tubes?

    So I want to go "ghetto tubeless" and yesterday stopped at the LBS to buy a quart of Stan's tubeless sealant. I then asked for either a pair of Shrader valves fully-threaded with the top nut, or a tube with the Shrader valve fully threaded that I could cut the valve off. I was told Continental makes this tube.

    LBS says they carry neither of these, and I would be hard-pressed to find them around town. I called another bike shop and they said the same thing, they could special order it or use a kit with a Presta valve.

    I have rims set up for Shrader valves and according to all of the conversion videos I have watched, was under the impression that these fully threaded Shrader valves are a dime a dozen and sold everywhere. Apparently not.

    Before I go online and order these, are they really not a common item to find at a LBS?

    This little dude:


    I've found a little information about trying motocross shops or BMX tubes. Should I be calling motorcycle shops or looking in the BMX section of Walmart?

    Thanks!

    They are use in Continental tubes.

    You can use presta in your Shraeder rims.
    The bike is nothing more then circles turning circles, It's the human motor that makes it elegant.

    Thanks for the reply. Nobody sells the Continental tubes around here. I'm trying to buy locally before ordering online.

    I believe Schwalbe tubes are threaded as well. Might check Motorcycle shops for threaded tubeless valves as well that could work depending on the internal width and shape of the rims you're trying to convert.

    I have never seen a Shraeder Conti tube in a bike shop

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Thanks all. Got a great lead from a LBS who suggested I call a local custom scooter shop. Guy on the phone at scooter shop says they carry them. Will check after work and report back.

    Not long enough. My rim alone is 25mm thick. Need them to be 44-48mm.....like Presta options....

    Schwalbe tubes have Schraeder valves that are long. Some bike shops or you can get online.

    Many Specialized schrader tubes have fully threaded metal stems. An LBS here has them. They're the same length as the rubber ones so IDK if they'd be long enough for you.
    Do the math.

    Cut out the valve stem from a Moto tube. Get a proper hex valve stem but too.

    zombie, but it took me enough time to find ... looks like "wheelchair" is a common description for fully-threaded schrader tubes.

    Eg, SCHWALBE AV17 tubes (700c, 26" 24" at least) have 40mm fully threaded stems
