comment What's the longer-valve, metal-ring inner tube style called?
Thank you! It's an auto valve with a rim nut that I'm looking for.

No, they actually did have Presta in that size with that valve. We want the standard one instead. (Ironic, because Presta's European, isn't it? So it's easier to get American parts in Europe and vice-versa, it seems...)

I went and got some of these emergency LED triangles and a AA NiMH battery charger. We'll see how it goes...

@neilfein, thanks for keeping it open, I wasn't aware of this development. @darkcanuck, I'll check them out, thanks. @DC_CARR, I did try looking for LED markers, but I only found either single-LED tiny lights for marking a camping tent, or automotive ones requiring a 12V power source.

It's true, I was disappointed to see MEC carrying all this stuff made overseas. Almost might as well buy direct if that's the only option.

Although, the cat-eye loop one might work if we can't find strip lighting. I wonder if the switch will turn off over bumps.

I checked out MEC and REI, but if you read the top review for the Superflash (rei.com/product/756360#ReviewHeader), it's the same reason I'm trying to get away from that form of light. One swipe with the backpack, or bonk with the helmet visor after putting things in the trailer trunk, and the cheap plastic bracket brakes so easily. Also any bump you go over with these things turns them off. Maybe I need something with a solid on-off switch.
