• Had my MilkIt valve break yesterday, on a ride. My initial mistake was using 75mm valve length on 33mm wheels so it was easier to break. Second mistake was picking up the "pointy boi" from an already-sealed puncture (oops) and making it bigger -- so the tire lost so much more pressure and sealant... It eventually stopped leaking, so I wanted to pump it a little to see if it really sealed. That's when it happened.

    (noticed I took the valve photo wrong last night... oh well)

  • I might be missing something obvious here but it just looks like the removable valve core has unscrewed?

  • I might be missing something obvious here

    You are. Look again at the core and you'll see the top few mm of the stem still attached to it

  • Yes, you're missing the black bit that's over the core, which is part of the valve stem.
