Well, if you ride good tires, they're expensive. If you skid often, you'll ruin them and get a flat. For someone new to tubulars, changing out a flat can take several hours and be extremely messy.

Clinchers can be cheaper and flats can be changed in under 5 minutes. It's not rocket science why they are the most popular style tire used for street use.

Technical answer: No
Realistic answer: Yes
