Have had a bad run with the tubulars lateley... topped off by the latest flat which has occurred with a Clement Strada TT which lasted all of two rides. The tube leaks from where the valve stem and tube meet. Is there anyway to reseal the tube? Could I try and and return the tire to the shop?

No, you can't fix it...............MR_GRUMPY

you can take it back, but they will tell you to get lost. Nobody takes tires back after they have been glued.
If you live in the USA, check out "" They replace tubes in sewups.
They do a good job with the tire, but I've heard that their base tape is crappy.
