Valves?

I'm having some 700c wheels built up on LX Hubs and Rigida Sputnic Rims for my 90's Dawes Galaxy. I will run 700x32 Schwalbe Marathons. So for touring mostly in the UK, which Valve type should I choose and why?

Does anyone know if it is possible to use supplemental Cyclocross brake levers on the flats of drop bars in conjunction with old school Non Aero brake levers with top cable exit?

Help!!! Bottom Bracket Confusion

I am updating a 90's Specialized Rockhopper. I want to fit a Shimano FC- M521 Octalink Crankset. My Frame has a 73mm BB shell. Do I need a 73 X 118mm Bottom Bracket, or a 73 X 126mm?
