For those who use tubes with removable valve cores here's the perfect tool. If I find that a tire has a very slow leak it's usually the valve core that needs a little tightening.

|The plastic piece at the top of the picture is what I used in the past to tighten valve cores. It would wear out fast.|
The VC-1 is designed for both Presta and Schrader removalble valve cores. The notch in the middle is for Presta stem extensions.
|The VC-1 fits nicely between the spokes. The VC-1 on the valve core the core can be easily tighten by hand.|

With 5 kids ranging in age from 36 years down to 16 years and 8 grandkids life can get a little crazy. Right now to ease all the craziness I need a anti-depressant and anti-anxiety drug topped with a cocktail of adeline, endorphins and a shot of endocanabanoids (the latest compound associated with a runners high or rather a trikers high).
THE PRESCRIPTION...a fast ride on my 700 to blow off a little steam and to sort out the craziness. I was blessed with a perfect day to put life back into a positive perspective.
The day was cool, crisp and sunny with gentle clouds speaking of better days to come.
