I've been using tubeless tyres for a while now, and today I needed to add some air to my back wheel (Currently using Conti GP 5000 TL)

the valve stem looks bent and I really struggled to pump the rear wheel with my track pump .... I ended up removing the valve stem and washed it in warm water, but i will need to get another pair of good valves (I topped up the front wheel and there were no problems) ....

If have a puncture on the rear that won't seal (I'm using Orange regular sealant), I will struggle to pump the rear wheel with my handpump, even if I use a dynaplug, as by that time I would have lost a lot of air ... so IU need new valves

I'm not sure what valves I have, as they were installed when I had my wheels built

So.... what's the best tubeless valves?

Personally, I've had good luck with WTB brass valve stems. I can usually find them for less than $10 on Amazon.

And if it's just cores you need, pinch them from busted tubes! :thumbup:
