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

Hi.
Today my new carbon tubular wheels arived (after some considerations I thought it would a better choice). Anyway I never had carbon or tubular wheels before so I'm somewhat confused. On my rear wheel on top of carbon there is metalic rim, but my front one doesn't have it. Should both of them have it, or does it only needed on the back one for reinforcement or something?

Thx.
