You could well be right there Ned, it was an 'only option' purchase as that's all they had at the shop & I needed it that day. It was my first ride on tubs, a very inauspicious start! I've got a Tufo clincher tubular that for the love of god will not stretch onto a rim - potentially decent idea, complete sealed tyre with a beaded bed for clincher rims but not a prayer of it being used - it's standard diameter is inches smaller than the rim - not impressed!
hence, liking iwasgoodonce's thread, as this will give me the confidence to go further afield on tubs
