    HED H3c tubular suitable for track use or TT use only??

    I was told that the adhesive strength to the carbon rim is about 75% of that to the aluminum rims. so, i'm wondering tubular tires installed on the pure carbon rim is ok to be used on track. thanks in advance.

    The Mavic Io has a carbon rim bed:



    So do Zipp track wheels:



    Of course, make sure you use quality tire and glue and have a competent mechanic install it...even if that mechanic is yourself
