|Yes it is a great post. It's something that we all deal with. Years ago my wife said if I bought anymore tubular tires she would divorce me. Well, I switched back to clinchers, still married and no more tubbies. You know, if I could teach her to wrench we would have a perfect marriage. I might be onto something here..|

|So the weekly question really boils down to "what your spouse permits", and has nothing to do with ride qualities, rolling resistance, ease of repair, all that. Hmm. Man, I was way off. :-)

|"ride qualities, rolling resistance, ease of repair"
Hmmm, those values could be used in describing various aspects of a marriage as well as tubies vs. clinchers! ;o)

|Sorry Doug, you lost me here. I don't know what you mean. Maybe it was a thing to do about money and cutting back on expensives at the time. Tubbies were kind of expensive in the 80's. I tried to make my wife happy. Guess it worked, I'm still married... tires are still a soft spot I can never seem to find the perfect tire. I can tell you one that isn't, Performance Forte Pro Kevlars. I could squeeze about 600 mi on the rear tire and into the garbage.
Went back to Conti GP3000's and what a difference!
