make sure you dont tighten down the tube to much or it will cause it to rip at the valve stem

pfft i dunno ask mark at ahpminis or something also a helpful thing that i think motoman was saying dont tighten that nut on the valve stem too much make it a little loose so that if that does happen you'll notice that the stem is cocked in a different direction and you can fix it rather than replacin a damn tube everytime

Yep its a 1.60.Its the same as a front rim lock for a big bike.I believe Mark(ahpminis.com) sells these for like $10-15.

Yeah, I got a flat yesterday. I battled the tire for a couple of hours, once I finally got it, only to realized that I pinched the tube or something. I'm about to go through the whole process again in a few minutes.

i had the prob. of busting my valve stem cap off too..... i am currently just running more PSI rather than a rim lock, but the lock is the way to go! 🙂
