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

ChallengeTech Tubular Glue?

Anyone familiar with Challenge's tubular tire glue? Picked up a couple tubes from my LBS based on their recommendation and am wondering if anyone has experience, good or bad, to share. Are they ok for carbon rims?

3m will go bad and dry out after a couple of months. Continental and vittoria stick too hard and will rip you base tape if you have to swap tires. Panaracer is the only way to go.

I'm riding on Challenge tubulars, an older design that resembles the Clements I used to ride in the '70s and '80s.

I've used Tubasti, Continental, and Vittoria glues. Tubasti is the only one I'd never use again. And I wouldn't hesitate to try anything made by Challenge.
