    Mounting a used tubular

    I had to remove a fresh tubular to change the valve extender. What do i need to do to remount this. Both the tire and rim have glue residue on them... do i need to remove all of this or just apply some more glue on top of the old on the rim and tire and put 'em back together.. ?

    I believe the correct response is to clean off as much of the old residue as possible before applying new glue (or, Tufo tape).
    2009 mileage = 14,738 miles; 2010 mileage = 15,234 miles; 2011 mileage = 17,344 miles; 2012 mileage = 11,414 miles; 2013 = 12,169

    i wouldn't worry about it...if it starts to give you problems, then clean off the excess glue and start again.
