Try using the front brake when tire pressure is low, and you will find out! The valve stem will dissappear or rip off the tube, making the tire a btch to get off, or leaving the tube unrepairable. Not a huge problem unless your 50 miles from nowhere!:thumbsup:

Just to make your life miserable while changing a front tire. You will be glad you have it when you need it like flat, low pressure, heavy braking on pavement, etc..
