valve stems

Does anyone know the hole size in the rim for the valve stems? I am gwetting ready to replace tire so would like to install some 90 degree valve stems. I see 2 sizes, 11.3mm and 8.3mm which is the correct one?

That's weird, I would have thought they're all the same! A valve stem is a valve stem

Have got a set of these and will be putting on shortly when I change my tires. But 11.3 is what size it says our bikes take.

I'd love to see a picture of those when you get them on. I like them, but I use a bike pump to top my tires off, and I'm not sure if there would be clearance for the pump head.

Why not! Should complement the other red accents on your bike! And if you donít like them itís a pretty cheap fix to go back to black.
