In case no one mentioned this, try a Panaracer Schrader-Valve/Presta-Valve Nut, Quality Part Number TU6000.

Look at the picture in Quality's Catalog at your LBS.

On a schrader sized hole, this nut threads onto the Presta Valve (if it is a threaded valve) and has a shoulder that faces down to fill the excess hole size.

Turn it over if using with a presta sized hole.
