Anyone that uses extenders to fill their tires with larger wheels (ex 80mm). I hear bad things about having to use them. can anyone share their experiences?
thanks

There are two types of extenders. Those that go "over" existing valve and those that "move" the valve to the end of the extender.

I prefer the 2nd
I use tubes with removable valves
You remove the valve, you put an extension
You put the valve at the end of the extension

The other option are extenders that go on top of valve. You leave valve open and you put an extension over it.

I use valve extenders you remove the valve stem, screw in the extender and then stem in the extender end.

Make sure to get tubes with removable stems. Carry the little plastic "wrench" in your spare ire gear to get the stem off.

Riding those types for 2 years now and no issues.

Rode with the ones that just went over the stems and it was horrible. If the stem gets stuck, you cannot fill the tube up or it leaks unless you take it out and fix it.

thanks for your help. Would these work on 80mm rims?

I get the 60mm and then get tubes with longer stems as well to make sure they fit 80 mm wheels.
