  1. You are a genius. Thanks for taking the time to make this video. You really saved my bacon!

  2. Ahh shit im dead right now i accidentally destroyed my bike tire

  3. Why do tyres go flat? Seriously. Do the valves leak?

  4. Kind of a wonky design. Begging for a technology update.

  5. Much appriate the help mate. Thank you for the help on it, only used schrader valves until I upgraded bikes a few days ago so this is very different.
    was wondering if you might take a look at my page and see some of my bike content?

  6. I have slime in my tire, but it’s flat. How do I pump it up?

  7. Still helping at least one person in 2020. Thanks a lot saved me a lot of embarrassment.

  8. Where did you get those handles

    Thank you for that video it took me showing my husband this video for him to figure it out. Now I can go bike riding!

  10. You can get the adaptors on eBay for about £2.50 that convert this valve to the standard valve used at gas stations and foot pumps. It just screws over the existing valve.

  15. Hi! Thank You for your informative Video upload! You really had me laughing all the way up to when unscrewed the dust cap off your *Presta* *Valve* , because when you first came into frame and sat down, I actually thought you were gonna come off as #MrRogersneighborhood (an American Fav TV Show). Here’s a trailer on *Tom* *Hanks* trying to pull off the same look you just did! –

    Thank you! Helpful video indeed!

  17. That bike is sick.

  18. Saved my new comer ass!!

  19. Did you hear the way he dropped that dust cap valve cover on the ground. When I do that I can never find it again after pumping the tyre up. I’ve learnt my lesson now. I’ll admit, though, I tend to do it outside.

  20. my plastic cap is tighter than bread and butter

    Thankyou, thankyou thankyou x

  39. My ancient Peugeot had these valves back in 1970, the bike shop sold me the adapters so they could be filled like schrader valves.

  40. oh my God it’s impossible… I didn’t use my bike 8 years. Now I don’t manage to pump the tires… :(:(:( I have a mini dunlop pump I once by coincidence pumped it right now even with instructions the tire is flat. completely. heeeelp

  41. Thank you 😀

  42. Thanks for sharing! It was very helpful! I never used this presta valve before and able to change the tube and pumped air!

  43. Thnx alot for this. Me like wtf is this haha. Better late then never xd

    thanks Dude…helped me out

  45. Thanks so much. We borrowed a bike (and her pump) and I had no idea about this valve. I wonder what engineer designed this for simplicity and easy for the public to use? Not an improvement by any idea. But I am thankful for your explanation, very easy to understand. I’ll go and fill the tires up. Lol, good thing I understand what a "Bar" of pressure is also.

  46. Thank you so much !!! 🙌🏾🙌🏾✊🏾

  47. The type of parts/stuff I am using!

  48. Hey,I have my new inner lube and was dumbfounded that I can’t figure out how to inflate it. We have an old fashioned pump, and can’t use that with this presta valve. Is it possible to inflate presta valve with my ordinary pump?

  49. Thanks you x
