Looks like a pipe but it ain't

I see every once in a while someone complains about adding air to their
tires because of HD new design on their wheels. I have the tubeless spokes and
it is a royal PITA so this is what I came up with. All fittings are local and easy to
get (just don't show it to a LEO he may think you are using it for other things)



The brass dohicky I got from a good friend that works at a tire shop it will fit the
1/4 inch pipe but has the wrong thread, I want to make another one and use the brass dohicky so I can use it on the road.



It looks a little long but it is about right to reach in and get to the valve stem
and get enough pressure on it to hold it on. Its not much but it works.

Nice, I may make one, but why not go with a 90 degree stem on next tire change?

Great idea. I'll make one for use until I change the stems.

I used 1/4 inch pipe and 2 45 degree fittings. I have the tubeless spokes and I don't know if
the 90 degree stems would work so that is what I came up with
