comment Is the Park Tool Allen Wrench going to strip out bolts?
It's faster in the long run to take the time to clean it out.

If it's the bolts that are stripping instead of the tool, make sure you have the right size wrench and insert it all the way in.

comment How much does rider weight increase tire pressure?
Maybe it is a simple formula. Take the interior area of the tube, maybe 78 sq inches. Fill the tire to 100 psi. Add a 150 lb rider. Is the 150 lbs distributed evenly among the 78 sq inches (assuming no tire stiffness)? If so, this would add about a little less than 2 psi. The increase in contact area would be proportional. I'm not sure about this, but it seems reasonable.

I think it has to be accurate. I checked it myself (on a tire with a shrader valve) and got the same result -- about 1 psi increase from 45.
