Anyone know if there is an adapter for the airshot to convert the valve connecting bit from screw on to clamp on?

Got Filmore valves (highly recommend) that you can't screw onto and looking for a solution that's better than me just holding it on tightly.

Have you tried mounting the tires without using the Airshot? I've got one but I don't think I've used it (or needed it) with Fillmore valves on road, gravel or mountain bikes.

I had one, but found that a CO2 inflator worked better.

I can screw my AirShot onto my Fillmores just fine. You know the skinny tip on the AirShot head is just a removable adapter right?
