Got it. In the context of disc brakes, I can see the issues. Not having ridden with them I was unaware of those issues.

can certainly be done - not 100% ideal, but works better than folks seem to think.

Started gluing tubulars for the first time today. Brushing glue onto the base tape reminds me of painting bare wood...the tape pretty much sucked in the first coat. Three coats of glue so far for both the tires and the rims.

3 coats as in 3 coats on the rim, 3 coats on the tire?

That's a lot of glue.

That's what the instructions said on the can (Specialized).

Gluing tubulars feels so 19th century. Still, gotta do it myself in the next day or two.

Finally on 11-speed. Put Rival 22 on the road bike. Huh, this stuff works a heck of a lot better than the 10-speed version.

It had been most of 5 years since I was last on a road bike when I threw a leg over my new Rival 22-equipped bike.

First thing I thought: Man, this feels like OG 10 speed Red.

My co-worker at the LBS, who has been doing this for ~30 years, told me that the Specialized glue was the thinnest he had seen. That might factor into it.

Sazeracs cure liver polyps.

Poutine in Charleston would be akin to red beans and rice in Banff.

You might get a little FD run at the extremes that may or may not be able to be dialed out.
