You can get tubular tape now that can make the issue of gluing a hell of a lot less sticky, messy and painful. I just got some cheap Vittoria tubs from wiggle, put in an order over $100 and they’ll post for free!
I ride from Annandale to the city and back and also will basically try to ride over or off anything that wont snap my frame in half, So i’m after the most affordable strongest tubular, what costs am I looking at.
One of the main reasons for using tubulars is the beautiful feel and lack of rolling resistance. There’s only a few tyres on the market that will strike a good balance between this and puncture protection. . . . . . and this isn’t one of them.
I refuse to use inner city cycles anymore, when I was a kid they used to part sponsor me for DownHill and I had the fondest memories of the shop.
Then I went back there after returning to Sydney Last year and placed an order for 1x 27 to be built up with that pommie guy and ended up having to call twice a week for 3 weeks and each time got a bullshit story to why it wasn’t done so I just gave up on em. Ive heard there’s a great shop in Newtown but I just don’t want to give Inner city Business.
I think I might throw an order to cyclic for the mad hippie giving me a tutorial and prices.
Will the Stradas stand up to bad surfaces and will I need to run like a million psi in them?
Mad Hippie wins the promised e- wheel of cheese and goat.
