To inflate a presta valve without an adapter, push the valve stem into the tire to open it, then use a hand pump or air compressor to inflate the tire.
Some people are afraid of needles, but for one woman, her fear turned into a life-saving act.
While out on a ride, the woman’s tire went flat. She didn’t have a presta valve adapter with her, but she didn’t let that stop her. She used her teeth to hold onto the valve and breathed into the tire until it was inflated enough to get her home.
The woman’s story is a reminder that we can overcome our fears and do what needs to be done, even when it’s difficult.
