that got screwed up by the bug just when it had some momentum.

Did you get what you were looking for?

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!
