Disclaimer: I've never owned or ridden tubies.
I can't find it again to save my life, but the other day on Velonews there was a pic from the Giro of a bunch of bikes with Continental tubies, with the logo blacked-out. The caption said something like, "Many teams have switched to Continental Tubulars in place of sponsor-correct tires." It didn't say why, but the impression I got was that they were more robust. Robust is good for commuting.
