Innovations In Cycling Inc Adapter

Innovations In Cycling Inc Adapter

Having no experience with Presta valves, I thought this adapter didn't work until someone told me that the Presta valve on the bike tire needs to be unscrewed. The Presta valve on the bike tire is an all metal assembly - including the cap. The cap does not even disconnect from the presta valve, it just loosens and unscrews.

Before I unscrewed the Presta valve I thought the adapter wasn't pushing a pin inside of the valve; but after I unscrewed and opened the valve, it worked like a charm.

As a side note, a bicycle store put an additional plastic cover over my Presta Valve; but in normal circumstance the valve is just a metal assembly without any plastic cover over it.

If you're not familiar with Presta, look it up real quick on the Internet and look at pictures of the valve opening, etc.

  1. What more can be said about this little piece of brass. Its a gem! especially if you already have a nice Schrader valve pump and don't wish to replace it with one that can accommodate presta. This little gem usually stays screwed tightly onto my bike tire (this is the easiest method I've found to keep up with it).

  2. Nothing much to this review other than the fact it works. I use a Black and Decker air compressor to blow up my bike's tires and this adapter works perfectly in the included air hose.

  3. My only gripe is that after I received this, I found the very same thing in my local bike shop for under a dollar. Great item, makes my life easier!

  4. If you have any road bike that uses a Presta tire, you should invest in this adapter just in case you only have access to a Schrader air pump.
    This adapter does what it says.
    Great build quality.

  5. The item works perfectly, exactly as described. The only difference is that the piece is gold, not silver as pictured. Would purchase again.
