    tufo tubular clinchers

    Are these still made? For some reason this year I can't seem to find anyone selling them. I was thinking of trying one on the rear wheel this season.

    They are discontinued. Good riddance. Too many stories of the tire rolling off the rim under high load with lowish pressure.

    Thats what I had heard (the rolling not the discountinued). I figured that much like other things I hear, I should learn for myself.

    I don't know, I watched it happen. 1 trashed ksyrium, scrapes to frame and saddle, not to mention the stitches.

    is there a psi at which they are safe? or very low risk of rolling? I ran the yellow tufo on my front wheel at 40 psi last race and had no problems. I reasoned that the rolling happens more on the rear wheel due to greater weight.
