Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Best On-Line Source for Tubula Tires

I'm getting back into the tubular game and it's been awhile since I shopped for any. Can someone recommend a on-line source to purchase tubular road tires?
Cheers

Wait for the sales, & the occasional two for the price of one special.

+1 for BTD.

If you know what you want, you can often find good deals on Amazon.

Probikekit, sign up for an account, log-in, put some stuff in your cart, and then wait a few days. When you don't complete the sale they will send you a 10% off coupon. Watch for sales and clearance and the extra 10% off is an added bonus.

Probikekit has Tufo Elite Jet on sale for $67 currently.

This is the 160g tire to use as a dedicated spare- very light & folds up small.

(the specs say 28mm but this is an error, as it only comes one size)

Another option for spares - might also want to look at the 3 tires for $50 offered by the Yellow Jersey Bike Shop in Madison, WI. Nice tubulars for cheap.
