Go to the cheepo auto parts store in your area and look for the rubber valvestem extenders that go on the dual rear wheel trucks and motorhomes. They are about 6" long or so and flexible. When you want to check or adjust air pressure in your rear tire remove the cap, screw the hose onto it, then use the valve in the end of the hose to check/adjust the air. When you are done unscrew the hose and put the cap back on.

I do this when I check/adjust my motorhome tires and it makes it pretty easy in very tight places.
Thanks for the tip Dan. I will try that. Kind of a bummer that it's built into the wheel. Maybe I could kill two birds with one stone if that valvestem extender worked for the rear shock valve too.
