What kind of valve is this (on a kids bike)?
#1
Top of valve looks like Shrader but is smaller (5mm).

Core unscrews easily using nut shown.

Is this an alternate Presta version valve, so if I'm using a pump / compressor with car / Shrader attachment, would I just need a Presta to Shrader adaptor?   Tnx

Looks like a woods valve, try using a presta to schrader adapter and pump it up like a normal tire

Appreciate the reply. I thought the size might be same as Presta... I'll get an adaptor then...
