I really really don't mean to start one of cycling's many polarized arguments, but I just started riding track. I use clinchers. I am currently building a track specific wheelset, and I am having a very hard time deciding which way to go.
I get so many mixed messages. People say clinchers these days are so good and high pressure that it takes all but the best tubbies to beat em. Talking to experienced track racers (most of them older), I hear things like "I'd never ride clinchers on the track in a million years..." Roger Young, the main guy at the ADT Center in Carson, claimed he rides Mavic Elipse clinchers during our class, but then he rolls up on tubbies the next day.
So, can anyone give me advice on which way to go? My purpose is 95% track, 70/30 wood and concrete. I am not competitive. I just ride track twice a week for general training.
