Presta Valve Length

Can someone please advise best presta valve length for Alex DA22 rims. I have difficulty connecting pump (hand or track) due to the apparent short length of protrusion of the original valves?

    Thanks Weyayeman,

    The protrusion from the rim is about 24mm (above knurled nut) so I gues it's 36mm or 42mm. So if I go for 60mm i will have to be careful not to put any undue lateral force when connecting pump.


  • I don't have deep section wheels, but I always buy tubes with long stem valves. Just easier.

    I'll follow your lead on that.
