im going to getting some tubulars for the first time and id like some with remoaveable valve cores, why? cause if i screw up bad and break a presta valve on a tubular it is a bigg problem. im using shallow rims so im not looking to add extenders, i just want insurance against maybe breaking a valve, its happened to me before on clinchers.

i like the conti tires and vredestein fortezs but im not sure if they have the changeable cores , i know tufo does, but i am not a tufo fan. any others?:thumbsup:

... I was gonna say Tufo (guess I just did), but you're not a fan...

FWIW, I can't see you breaking a presta valve on a tubbie (even during installation) unless you're really ham fisted about everything. Another plus for removable cores is ease for installing sealants... though it can be done with standard presta stems as well.
