Reader Comment: Tubular Tires

See also tubular tire articles.

Excellent work this year - congratulations on your successful Double Century finishes.

Thanks to Wind in My Face I've become a total tubular convert. I'm currently wearing tubes on all my road bikes - mostly Veloflex Vlaanderen. They're a bit of a squeeze on my bamboo road bike so that's wearing 25 mm Victoria Corsa. The ride? Superb.

One difference is that I've switched exclusively to tape (from Mastix glue) and do all mounting myself. I'm not adventurous but I am cheap. The Effetto Mariposa Carogna tape appears to be doing a great job. The following article uses Tufo tape but the difference between tape and glue is slight, 9%.

My younger son (39 - not very young) has also switched exclusively to tubulars.

When other riders see my wheels are wearing tubs they smile and wonder, aloud, who I telephone if I get a flat. I'm tempted to show them how quickly you can swap one tire for another but usually resist. I've had ONE flat on tubs while riding over the last two years and swapping tires took, as you know, not very long.

I'd also like to comment on your outstanding photography, which I enjoy.

WIND: tubulars using tape might be just the ticket for riders without a skilled local bike shop.
