comment How to achieve an always clean chain
i think degreaser that does not advertise as bio degradable is already idiotic. kerosene and gasoline is even worse. if you can't clean with water and soap, just throw it away and buy another. steel is biodegradable :) also, your goal is to get oil INSIDE the rings. and degrade will ALWAYS remove that. and putting it inside again will be much harder.

comment Can I use a Presta tube in a Schrader rim?
imho, MTB rims with presta valves plus the grommet are the best of both world. you will never get a flat because of valve steam pinching.

comment how to use “smart valve” pumps?
i will, and all my spare tubes are presta. but there is no reason to trhow away a perfectly good scheader tube just because it is annoying to pump :) so i'm running with both for now, until i get a flat.

comment how to use “smart valve” pumps?
yep. the unmounted tube did the trick. i measured how deep it has to go (almost the entire thread have to disappear) and then it can fill the tire. it was more trouble than it was worth it to try to insert it on the empty tire since it has MTB rubber... i just pumped a little with my hand pump.. debating if i will keep this floor pump or return it. it seems practical but i leave my tires empty pretty often. maybe it is a good motivator to not to :)

"Press the Clever Head on to the Presta or Schrader valve stem as far as it will go" hum. maybe because my Schrader tire is completely flat i can't press it enough for it to "work"?
