Nope, see, this is correct, unless one has disc brakes, then just fore of the fork leg is tolerable. It must be on the left. No exceptions.

That is NOT correct. The lever should be parallel to the ground, n00b. :hmmm:

BTW, I assumed the OP was talking MTBs - in a road configuration always on the non-drive/left-hand side. The front parallel to the ground, and the rear one bisecting the chain and seat stays. This is not open to debate.

Then it doesn't actually matter and it becomes all about appeasing traditionalists.

Do I believe what Im seeing? If the tyre logo on that bike is not lined up with the logo on the rim and also the valve stem, then this is an outrage.

absolutely. plus it makes it way easy to find the valve (cos, like, that's SO difficult!) when you've got a flat...

It's not so you can find the valve, it makes it easier to find the object in the tyre if it's small enough to not be easily seen straight away




That and you know, it's more aesthetically pleasing.

A smart vorbii would only post pedaless pics on here, keeps the thread from crashing and burning at worst or at best a 3 page sidetrack....
