    Apparently at least one bike pump manufacturer (beto) uses the terms AV, DV, and FV. A normal (cyclist) person would call them Schrader valve (AKA American Valve), DV is Dunlop valve, (or Woods valve or English valve) and FV is Presta valve (also known as French Valve).


     


    In the US at least, Presta valves are found mostly on road bikes and racing bikes, and sometimes mountain bikes. Schrader is used on most other bike types, and cheap bikes. Dunlop is not much used in America.
