Or you could go for extenders with rubber sleave like the Silca ones.

Just a piece of tape is probably the most common. Just cut a piece and poke it right over the valve, letting the valve tear the hole then tape it to the rim. Easy peasy.
That's not making sense to me. The little bit of a jingle comes from the top of the valve stem (inner side of the rim). If I poke the valve through some tape and then insert it into the rim I'm not seeing how the tape will travel up to the top/inner part of the rim.

1415chris - I don't use extenders. I have 80mm valves / Michelin tubes on 50mm rims which is a decent fit.

(BTW, it's a very minor jingle so it doesn't really drive me crazy or anything.)

You put a piece of tape over the valve when the tube is already mounted. You’re not trying to build a cushion between the valve stem and the inner diameter of the rim valve hole at this point, you’re just basically taping it down to the rim in order to keep it from banging against the sides. The tape ends up on the external sides of the rim around the valve. Yes it’s visible. And yes it stops the clicking. Done quite often.

FWIW, I've been suffering C64 clickling/creaking and have had a couple of mechanics do everything they can do to play whack a mole. Broke down and got Ceramic Speed BB and will get it installed tonight. Hope this works.

I Agree.

Not sure if you looked into the chain ring bolts. A friend had a click and we swapped cranks and the noise went away. Put it back on and it was there again. Re did all the chain ring bolts with anti seize and some grease and that got rid of the click.

What crankset are you using?
