Ive avoided tubulars up until now... always heard they are super troublesome. Maybe its time to try them out though, if I fail to find suitable clinchers.

This might be totally ridiculous, but Ive found a very reasonably priced pair of the RM-20, which I know are for mtb but was thinking of fitting 1.5" panaracers on it? Thoughts?ARAYA RM-20 36H PAIR 559 / 26" ba1 retro MTB

edit* ive actually found a thread that says its possible, someone did it on a commuter bike... I guess im worried its a total fudge for what im hoping to be a nice restoration... ?
Araya RM-20 rims are moderately narrow for "mountain bike" rims, which makes them a good match to 1.5" tires. I had a Gary Fisher mountain bike that I built with similar width rims and Tioga City Slicker tires. It was a surprisingly quick setup.
