Double-sided tape for mounting tubulars(4 posts)

Double-sided tape for mounting tubularsomar

I've been using a double sided tape for mounting tubulars for roadside repairs. My LBS has run out of the tape and can't seen to get their hands on the stuff. The cardboard core says Advance Tapes, Leicester, UK. Does anybody know of an LBS that will ship the tape?

Search the archives, there was some discussion of this a while back. I seem to recall that Doug S. uses Tufo tape for his sewups.

Good luck!

they just don't grip well enuf, and they fall apart in the wet. Even tubasti is better than tubular tape!

and glue up your primary wheels too! tubular tape sucks and just doesn't work.
