A week or so back I bought myself some tubs, Mavic rims and campy record hubs, all with a 5 speed freewheel. The thing is though, I didn't actually read the description too well (or at all, it would seem) and didn't realise they were tubs until the day they turned up. I've never actually used tubs before and I'm not 100% certain that I want to especially. So, somebody tell me why I should, or why I shouldn't. My biggest reservation is regarding punctures: I don't like the idea of spending £40 on a new tube everytime I hit a nail etc, and also don't like the idea of being stuck out and about somewhere without being able to simply pull my tyre off and fix it at the side of the road. I do like the idea of the bike being a nicer ride, but really, I'm a very average rider, will I notice the difference? I'm sure that I can get some clincher rims for a similar price to these and spend half the amount on tyres and know that I'll be able to maintain them for years to come. Discuss....
