    Hey there Toronto folks. I need a favour. I am planning on sending a bike with my parents to Toronto for a cousin of mine. It needs some work and various parts like a 7 speed cassette and possibly a saddle. Are there any local bike coops or LBSes with used parts etc? Thanks!

    They are a Czech company. Eastern Euros dominate these disiplines so it doesn't surprise me they make em.
    I treated myself and got C Prestige tubular clinchers for my cross bike as well. SWEET!!

    How much $$ are the tubular clinchers? Do they really reduce pinch flats? I pretty much have to run my cross clinchers at 75 psi to avoid pinchflats, and even then I still get them from time to time. I was considering building a tubular wheelset for the cross bike. Never can have too many wheels, right?

    You cannot pinch flat these. I have em here unmounted if you want to have a look. They are in the $60-$120 range for the clincher tubies. The ones I have you can run at 28psi!
    Oh yeah...I got Tufo tire sealant as well. Adds 15 gm to the weight..will fill a hole up to 1/8 inch!
    Edit. What tires are you currently running that you are having pinch flat probs with?

    Wait what? Tubular clinchers? Do you still need to glue them on? How does flat repair work? I don't want to be a weight weenie but wow, was that one of those tubulars you handed to me yesterday cavernmech?

    Cool. 28 psi-I can't do that on my MTB. Pricey though. Are standard tubular cross tires any cheaper? I wouldn't mind having a set, just to kick it old-school.

    The tubie clincher is really quite ingenious. It has a base layer with beads to "clinch" on the rim. No glue...no mess. Brooks runs a set on his track training wheels and loves em. The Tufo tires use a true tubeless system. The tire casing is airtight. The sealant can be put in before use or after a puncture has already occured. The lightest tubie clincher tips the scales at 225 gms. The ones I showed you were the S3 lite tubular...125 gms.

    For comparison purposes the Vittoria cross tubies weigh substantially more (at least when you are talking about tire weight) have an inferior casing tpi and run about $70 per.
    I will give you a great deal on em next time I order. I will let you know.

    This would work for me too. My LRF shows "possible rain" and as an ex-employee of the Canadian Atmospheric Environment Service, I say that's good enough - it will not rain on Sunday night.
