I'm seriously thinking of going back to clinchers. I just rolled a tubular in a race this weekend - first lap. I had glued them with 4 coats to the rim, 3 to the tire and also sealed them but it still failed after a few races.
This is not the first tubular incident I had. When I think about all the trouble they were to glue on, and the expense, combined with the fact that I don't feel confident on them - should I bag them?
I have a good pair of Michelin Mud 2's and Maxxis Raze - which I practice with - but at my weight of 195 - I would need to run these at a fairly high pressure (around 50 psi) which has me bouncing all around the course.
Damn - those Tubies run so nice but I'm asking myself, is it worth it?
Any of you feel the same, or have some good clinchers to recommend?
