As I stay in the C&V group, I'm moving from entry level bikes toward nicer bikes. Forgive me if I use the wrong terms or incorrect names, the subject of glued on tires/rims is new to me.
The latest bike that I'm looking at has some beautiful 700C rims with tires that are glued on. My questions are:
1) Are tires for these rims still available, if yes what's the typical price range?
2) Is mounting, gluing these tires to the rims a major pain or is this just a minor inconvenience?
3) Is it worth it to continue to use this rim/tire combo or should I just throw in the towel and consider replacement clincher rims?
Comments, opinions most welcome.
