It does not look as if they sell any anymore.
All models are "Out of Stock".
Seems strange that every model would be out of stock if you were still making them OR they are so popular they can not keep any model in stock. Flying out the door.

I picked up a small nail several years back and was probably losing pressure for hours before all of a sudden my tire was getting flat very fast. I was riding downhill on an interstate between two tractor trailers. It was the scariest minute of my life.

I had checked my tire pressure that morning before riding as I do every day I ride. I think a decent TPMS would have shown me the pressure drop over time before it went critical on me.
Correct, no amount of pressure checking can protect you from a puncture that occurs in-route. I've had two instances where the TPMS warned me of a pressure loss on the freeway giving me plenty of time to get off the freeway and find a service station where I plugged and re-inflated the tire. I also like the ability to monitor my repair. I have the SmarTire system which has since been discontinued unfortunately, but it uses inside the tire sensors which avoids messing with the Schrader valves.

Many Years ago when I was looking in pressure monitoring system available on the market , I decided back then to not go with electronic .I choosed to go with mecanic type instead. I know , I know . . . not all of them are good and safe to use , but this is the one in the 40 PSI version I went with because of their qualitys ; http://tireqp.com/index.html
Easy to visually check on them at each stop and before each ride , they are acurate egnought to show some lost of air .I confirm that they did their job verry well ,a couple of time telling me that something was wrong and needed my immediate attention Then it was tire fixing time right on the spot

Originally , I had them installed on the rubber valve thinking that because of their weight there was going to be OK , but after a certain period of use ,I noticed that the rubber valve had started to lean in an angle created by the rotational force .I then went with the shortest straight steel valve I have found on the market at that time and I have posted about them on this thread in post #4 . Here is the link again . . . http://kurveygirl.com/shop/product_i...products_id=71
Those valves a on there since and I always carry a spare one in the tire fixing kit because You never know when it will be needed on the road somewhere
