    I've got a question about valve stems on some new tubes I bought (on ebay). It would make sense to
    post a picture or a link to a picture to illustrate my question. It seems, as I look back on my
    experience with this NG, that I don't recall seeing any pictures posted directly, only links to
    sites with the pictures. Are there guidelines for picture posting (image size, etc.) posted
    somewhere for all to see? Thanks, Dave

    Binary files, including images, can only be posted to dedicated newsgroups (typically with
    'binaries' in the name). This is in consideration of the storage requirements for large files on
    privately owned newsservers.

    Well this is a textgroup so even if your ISP let you post a pic, we wouldn't see it. Most people use
    one of the free photopages out there. Like mine: http://photos.yahoo.com/briangoebbels (resolution
    kinda sucks tho) I've seen better ones out there.

    The IHPVA-site got somewhere you can post them too I think. ???

    As for other guidelines I guess 800x600 for ordinary pics might be a nice upper limit. My 15 inch
    monitor can go higher but I rarely do. If you're posting pics where detail is important you can
    always go higher if your webpage/photopage has the space and allows it.

    Hope this helps Mikael

    Fair enough. How do I encode the link to a website when I create the message?

    Here's the URL: http://www.netacc.net/~helarson/

    oh. It's that easy?

    You could if you had access to his local drive. file:///E:/tmp/downloads/smooth%20presta.jpg

    Dave, you need to load the file on the server that host your web page and reference that location
    in your HTML

    Something like: http://www.netacc.net/~helarson/smooth%20presta.jpg

    Us you valve anything like one of these? http://www.sheldonbrown.com/gloss_w.html#woods

    I got the link working (or, to be more correct, I uploaded the jpeg and set the reference to
    it properly.) And, no, it doesn't look quite like anything I've seen before, except in a
    general way. Dave

  15. It looks as though Dave's valve is one designed for aero rims - hence the long stem and lack of
    threading for a locknut. It will work quite happily with a normal rim, but take extra care when
    inflating the tyre...
