The fifty cent adapters work with pumps as well and are metal. That said I carry both on long rides usually.

It's a cool little trick, but I think you'd be better off throwing an actual valve adapter in your seatbag.

Who actually has valve caps? That shit goes immediately in the trash, except on brand new tubes that I haven't unboxed yet (rare, since I usually just patch customers' old ones).

I usually try to keep a valve cap on packed spares

not just for this trick, but to avoid the "tube poked a hole in itself with the valve-nut thread-spike" problem

Old sign from a shop I used to work at. Interesting the brands represented (and absent).

I almost always have issues with anything Bike Rumor writes; the supposition that doll houses were exclusively for girls prior to someone putting tools inside one is ignorant and sexist, and I'm not even remotely PC.

Right.

Now have a kid and try to to go shop for something for that kid that's not ridiculously gender oriented. It's fucking nuts.

Possibly of interest to others here. Rapha is finally releasing a Pro Team gilet.

oh man, you guys and your sexism accusations... I just thought that was really cool. Cool use of those pointless Pedal ID things. Dollhouses have been a-okay for dudes since Freamon on the Wire.

also, sugoi and i believe special ed already knocked off the assos vest, so this means the RAPHA version is number 4?

if you are going to blatantly knock off a vest, at least do the casteli gabba

I'm reserving judgement on the vest but it looks unoriginal, I agree. If it works better than others in practice rather than on a hanger, I'll practice in it and play clothes hanger.

It wasn't the fucking amazing dollhouse that anyone had a problem with, it was the Bikerumor writeup that asserted that dollhouses were for girls until you put miniature tools in them. Tools aren't for girls, therefore dollhouses must be for boys now.

Guys, I was annoyed by the typically stupid Bike Rumor copy, not the dollhouse itself. That's pretty clear, if you bother to read before you post.
