Comments about Nashbar Presta Valve Adapter:

As others have commented, this thing doesn't work unless you file or grind it down. I have an adapter that came with my bike that does work on a standard Shrader air hose. That adapter is 0.756" long; Nashbar's is 0.807" long so a Shrader air hose doesn't push on the Presta's valve stem to admit air. However, neither will work on my digital tire gauge made for a Shrader valve. I found the solution made by Slime, #20270, that is 0.612" long and works with both the Shrader air hose and digital Shrader air gauge.

    Comments about Nashbar Presta Valve Adapter:

    An often overlooked item that should be carried in your bike bag if you are running Presta valves. Also handy for tubes with short valves when used on thicker rims.

    Works fine

    Comments about Nashbar Presta Valve Adapter:

    The adapter works fine - I read several reviews that it was too long and had to be ground down, I guess so that the filler nipple would hit the end of the threaded rod in the presta valve. Well, it doesn't have to. The filler nipple gets pressed by the adapter edges, releasing the air, then the presta valve gets pressed down by the air pressure coming out of the filler - just like it does with a presta-pump. I did have to press the valve end by hand and release a bit of air, just to loosen the valve - it was stuck enough that the air pressure didn't release it and I thought the reviews were right. After taking the adapter off, giving the valve a quick poke then putting it back on, it worked just fine. The only somewhat real issue is that you can't use a schrader pressure gauge with the adapter attached, so you have to overfill, then bleed down using a presta gauge.

        Too long will not allow the compressor tip to compress the presta valve tip. Guess I'll try to cut it down like others have done but shouldn't need to, poor design

        Comments about Nashbar Presta Valve Adapter:

        The adapters fit the presta valve correctly. The end for filling with air was too long and the air nozzle wasn't able to depress the valve so it would take air. Had to cut some of the length of the adapter to be able to air up the tire.

                Doesn't work with compressor Schrader

                I had the same problem as Wary, the stem is too long on the adapter is too long to work with my compressor Schrader valve. I wish I had read his review before I bought one.

                  Four bikes in family with mixed valves - needed a small adapter for the emergency pump/repair kit. Got one for the shop compressor and one for the repair kit. Solid brass fitting; well made and durable
