Difficulty accessing rear tire valve

Not sure if you have this issue also. But, I find it difficult, mostly with the rear wheel, to fill the tire with air. The back tire air valve can be a little difficult to access.

Any suggestions?

Does anyone know of a 90 degree air chuck?


I have seen extension valves, but I do not want to throw off the balance of the wheel.

Thanks

Ed, check this out. I had a similar complaint and rigged this up.

It is easy to screw on and is a breeze to fill. I added a Smarttire system and now I know as soon as I start to roll my air pressures...
