Erl, I put Orange seal into the tubes on the bike that I converted to 650b 
for my daughter.  Although she doesn't have a whole lot of road (outdoor) 
miles on those wheels yet, she has had no flats.  I was able to get tubes 
with removable valve cores from Silver Exp. here in Kensington. I think 
they had to get them from the other store.   Inserting the OS wasn't much 
trouble as I recall.  I will see if I have the boxes or other indication of 
the tube brand (I think they had long valve stems, but that didn't 
matter).  Cheers, Steve
