Tubulars, brave man, a badly fitted tubular can roll off and cause a crash as has been demonstrated in the TDF in the past :shock:

Plus you cant let a tub glue cure long enough if you need to replace one by the roadside.

I'm from a tourist background, when your miles and even days from home a clincher tyre with seperate inner tube wins hands down everytime and to hell with lightness and roundness of tyre cross section. Stay away from the dark arts, remain in the light :wink:

It's a spare set of wheels not for everyday use. Matching tub version of clincher wheels I have, only with close ratio block.

Some of you may remember that the BB on my Monkey was in the process of giving up at the national, so rather than just replace the BB I decided it was time for a few upgrades! :D
