Rated 5 out of 5 by A Brilliant replacement I used to run Maxxis freeride tubes which are about a fiver more expensive. I've got to say, it's not worth it. These work just as well if not better. 18 February 2014

Answer: 
Schrader is also called the car valve and can be inflated by a service station air hose.
Presta is also known as the french valve and is thinner. The small round nut on the presta valve must be unwound 2 or 3 mm and the stem depressed by hand to open the valve before inflating. Retighten nut after inflating.
Most of the later bicycle pumps have two outlets, one for each type of valve.
However, if your pump is presta only, it can still be used on a schrader valve. You need to buy the old style flexlble bike pump connector (they are bout 15 cms long and cost around $2) . It has a schrader connection on one end. (better than buying another pump).
Screw that end on to the schrader valve, then insert the other thinner end into your presta pump.
(Just push it in, even though it is threaded, it will make an airtight connection.)

Answer: 
The schrader valve is also known as the car valve. You can inflate the tube at vehicle service stations.
The presta valve is also known as the french valve and is used on high pressure tubes. This valve is thinner. Before you pump up the tube, wind back the small
round nut on the valve stem 2 to 3 mm and push the stem into the valve , which opens the airway into the tube. When topping up air pressure, you must do this because often the valve stem sticks due to the tubes' high air pressure and, it must be manually depressed to open it, (you will lose a small bit of air.) If it still won't open when you try to pump air into it, lower the air pressure in the tube and re- inflate.
Be sure to re-tighten the round nut.
The plastic dust cap must not be screwed on tight. It can press down on the valve stem and cause the valve to leak. (Mysteriously you get a flat tyre overnight.)
Just screw it on until you feel it start to resist then stop.
