new to track, clinchers or tubes?
i finally got a track frame, a beautiful cherry red carbon frame from the japanese company Presto - and it was free, lucky me...
now i`m looking at wheels - if i get tubes will i be that much faster? the guy at the LBS (and this is the Giro track builders shop here in Kurume, Japan, so i guess he knows his stuff) reckons the tubes are for the pros, but i want to get into competitive track racing, so - tubes or the cheaper clinchers?
how much of a time difference will i be looking at over 1km?
