Looking for feedback from anyone who might have used this, or a similar product.

Could this be a quick, clean and easy way of carrying an unglued tubular spare and/or is it race worthy?

I currenty use Mastik One with a three day glue up methodology... as well as Tufo tubular clinchers. Sometimes I feel lazy...

We abide.

Remain In Light.

I wonder if they are as bad as all those tubular tapes sold in europe? Not one of them hold a tire securely enough for me to feel safe!
TUFO makes some very good tires, so maybe these things aren't bad? I think that I'll stick with Mastik1, though.

im actually being quite sincere in asking as ive never needed to take that long.

i can always learn more even if ive ridden tubulars for what seems like most of my life.

I figure that if I've got the time... it's worth being consistent (kinda like a pre flight check list... boring, but at least you don't miss something stoopid that could save your life).

I've never used any other method so I can't say they aren't viable... this just gives me peace of mind.

I too am open to a bit of experimentation (see post about Tufo glue tape), but at my age, I don't get up and/or heal nearly as fast as 25 years ago.

We abide.

Remain In Light.
