    Angled tire valve stem

    While my bike is in for a service and new tires I was thinking about installing an angled valve stem on the front wheel. It's awkward to get a pressure gauge on the straight stem. Has anyone used an angled valve stem on the front wheel? What are your thoughts?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Open the post you want to delete. At the bottom you will notice a Edit button. Click on that and then you will notice at the bottom there is a Delete Post button. That will get rid of it for you.

    PS: I tried a couple of different angled valve stems on my 1100RT wheels and they all seemed to leak so I just went back to the shorty type they came with.

    The first post can't be deleted by the original poster and also they can't delete the thread...only a moderator can do that.

    To that end, and since the OP has found some other forum information, I'll close this thread and delete it somewhere down the line.
