|Back in the day (the 80's) I used 3M Fastak (sp?) to glue tubulars, and never had any problems.
After almost a decade of riding clinchers only, I picked up some Conti Sprinters (price was too good to pass on), and as soon as I get around to building up a 9 speed rear wheel, I'll be good to go. In discussions of tubular glues here and on other forums, however, I read that some glues dissolve the base tape adhesive used by Continental.
Any experience (good or bad) using Fastak to glue Conti's?

|I've never used the Fastak approach, but my understanding is that it is the prime offender in damaging Conti base tape. With Contis, I'd stick to traditional tubular glue.|

|They say that Fastak has been reformulated over the years and now is more aggressive toward tubular base tapes. They also raise the question as to why you wouldn't use a glue formulated specifically for tubulars. Of course, that was a valid question even when Fastak was popular.|| |
