Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Does anyone ride tubulars here everyday or alot ?

how many miles do you do a week ? do you put your tubulars/wheelset thru alot of abuse ? do you find it more/less reliable than a pair of clinchers?

150m/w, some of them yes, more reliable in the city (mine wear out before they flat) less offroad (cross tubulars I have do not have puncture protections) have them on all of my bikes, all but one wheelsets.
