Are you a Presta of Schrader cyclist? And why?

Always Presta - nowadays just out of habit I guess. BITD because they held pressure better and I could use the same pumps on road/track/mtbs and not have to mess about with valve adaptors.

Schrader because we used to have a compressor (for inflating tractor tyres) and I am a lazy slob... :lol:

Presta for high pressure and keeping the air in (!) with brass schrader adapters - best of both worlds!

Either as I have a pump that can do both without having to fiddle with adapters (best pump I ever got BTW). You just stick it on and pump away - no little plastic widgets to drop or anything!

Though I tend to lean to Presta when buying replacement tubes as you can get away with using them in shrader rims if necessary at a push.
