I've never looked for whole setup. My tubes came with 4 chambers capped and 3 with relief valves. I found the 4 needed on ebay for $12/ea (I should have bought more as Wing charges $30/ea).
I've seen how the whole thing goes together. The large ring of plastic has a male and female piece and they just screw together to to sandwich the fabric (this is where you hope you can get them tight enough, I don't think that there's any adhesive or sealant). The PRV then screws into the center.
I tried tightening the male/female connections a while back but was marring the plastic trying to get a grip so I figured there had to be a secret way. I talked to "I love ribs" yesterday and he said just to crank them down and not worry about marking up the plastic with your pliers.
I'd love to open the male/female up and make sure that it's clean and maybe put some silicone to try to create a better seal but I'm worried about loosing the backing into the tube chamber.
jky, thanks. The PRV's themselves are fine; it's just that air is leaking around them. The ones we have are made by SEI. I would think installing new ones like you showed on that link would involve cutting the tube?
