Clincher/Tubular Mix(2 posts)

I just picked up a Ksyrium SSC rear tubular wheel on ebay ( seemed like a good price) . Unfortunately the only front wheels I have are all clinchers. Does anyone have any experience running this mix with the clincher in front? I'm eventually going to get a tubular front wheel, but I'd like to try this puppy out before then.
Thanks

I have done this without problems. The issue might be if you have a flat. When I rode that combination I did carry a spare tube for the front and a spare tubular tire for the rear. Now I carry 2 tubular spares.
