i just went through the same process as you (i have an english frame from the mid 50s), and ended up going for tubulars. I havent flatted on them yet but I love the ride quality and i have no regrets going to sew ups. I ended up putting a conti sprinter in the front, and a gatorskin tubular on the back because they're pretty thick and durable (from what i've read). biketiresdirect.com has some good deals on tires. i normally ride conti gatorskin clinchers, and the tubulars were only a few dollars more in price. you can hit the stan miles link in my sig if you want to see how it ended up.
