    tubulars are smoother than clinchers if thats what you're asking. they are also a pain in the ass to fix on the road.

    I've been using a unique mixture of oxygen and nitrogen.
    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    I've heard of using Pure Nitrogen in Car racing tires for Autocross - the pressure doesn't change as much with temperature which simplifies adjustments - but I've never heard of using CO2...

    You can get CO2 cartridge pumps. Their only use is quick tire inflation.
    I can ride the solarcycle with no hands.
