Tube Question

I had a local guy that does a lot of work on cruisers change out the rear on my '14 800XC this weekend while I was at a baseball tournament with my son. Installed a new tube also. When I picked up the bike last night he told me he had installed one nut on the valve stem outside the rim and one inside. When I asked him about it he said they do it all the time on spoked wheels.This sounds like it could be a problem to me as it could create a friction point. Called the dealership where I bought the bike and got no definitive answer whether or not this is OK. Leaving for Colorado next week and don't need any self inflicted problems. You guys have any advice/thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Have you not owned a bike with tubes before? 100% normal. That is why it comes with two nuts.

As someone else mentioned....male stem...needs two nuts!

Yup , OE tube has a nut inside and out. I know , because I just looked at it on a shelf in the garage , as my rear is tubeless.

Berger and Rhino Thanks. Just couldn't figure out why a dealer would install it differently and not know an answer. And Berger...some of us had no teachers so we learn on our own or by the advice of others.
