  • Good quality, shame about the colours

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Well machined, anodising looks good, fit my presta valves perfectly unlike some others which are tight or have play in the threads.

    Cons:

    I got sent a red one and a blue one... I expected at least a pair in the same colour, even if it does say assorted...

    No brass insert means these will seize on in time unless greased (only really deer ones have inserts, so not really a con)

    OtherThoughts:

    Make sure you put a little grease (preferably copper grease) on the dust cap threads as aluminium WILL chemically weld itself to brass.

    These are only for presta valves... they will not fit car valves or most cheap mountain bike valves. Road valves and deerer mountain bike tubes though will be fine.

    Bottomline:

    Lightweight bike bling, just a shame dx are rubbish with colour matching :p
