To those of you running dynabeads, where do you position the valve stem when checking/adding air? Monday I'm getting my new E3 250 mounted w/dynabeads. I received the dynabeads yesterday and the included instructions say to have the valve stem at the bottom but I've heard you shouldn't do that because you could get a bead hung up in the schraeder valve. :dontknow:

I do mine at the bottom. They can't fall in if they are resting at the bottom of the tire and the bottom of the valve is pointed down. Never had any problems.

I check mine wherever the stem ends up that I can get to it. But on both our bikes I've had the valve stem stick from a bead getting stuck in it. No big deal, I just hit it with the gauge again and it releases, but checking them at the bottom may stop that.
