Yesterday I manage to g et rid of the hop near the valve stem. Unfortunately te tire now has a hop in a different location. I didn't feel like messing with it today.

Funny thing is that the front tubular tire went on the wheel with no hop at all.

I shall persevere and get this rear wheel t ire hop out... eventually. I'll let you all know when that happens.

Cheers

I've mounted tubs so many times now that I'm good at getting the tension even all the way around the first time. If I do an up getting a lumpy spot I'll just pull over to the side of the road, remove wheel, deflate and readjust the tension to stretch out the lump then air it back up and continue the ride. Not a big deal.

Has anyone ran the Vittoria Rubino Pro? Just wondering how durable they are. I think I'm going to get some 28mm's for my Univega Gran Rally, they're a pretty good price.

I need to glue or tape about 5 or 6 tires.
Procrastination keeps 2 bikes side-lined and 1 bike only hopeful for an upgrade.

What do you DO? when you glue?
Music? TdF video reruns? TV/streaming?

Being a 2 1/2 layer gluer - for new tires w absorbent basetape - I need inspiration worthy of repetition.

First I make sure my dog is good and tired so she won't be inserting her nose and fur into my business.

Which half of the rim do you glue? The valve stem hole side or the rim label side?

Mounting Tubular Tires requires 100% focus and 0 distractions. To suggest that you can do it while watching TV or listening to music is crazy talk. Newbies read this thread. Someone could get hurt.

I'm seeking comments on the Bontrager R4 320 Tubular Road Tire. An ebay seller hasthem for $50 shipped for 25mm tan walls. The normal Trek price is $70-100.

Since I entered retirement 3 weeks ago, I'm finally finding time to re-build my Lotus Super Pro Aero.

While I'd like to go with the super skinny 19-20mm tubulars I originally bought, now that I'm here on the GA coast, I'm thinking I'd like a little more rubber at 25mm and slightly lower PSI in my tires. I have on hand 25mm tan-wall Vitoria Rallys but feel as if it deserves better tires.

Pictured above is when I brought it home. The PO had mismatched rims. I replaced the rear clincher to match the front tubular.

I can't comment but I'm glad you posted them. I think I'll try them myself, they look perfect for me.
