|I am looking to start training on tubulars. Does anyone have any suggestions on what the best tubular is as far as flat resistance, durability, and quality are concered. I would like to keep them cheap but certainly don't want to buy crap. Any suggestions and prices would be appreciated.|

|They last and don't flat (not yet for me). Plus, may get away with not carrying a spare, as they use a sealant you can inject after a puncture. They don't have great traction, though, but there is a trade-off for everything.

|This is an entire line of 'tough' tubulars, all of them have superior durability. My experiences with S33 Specials is that they last about 4000 miles, make a bit of noise, and just don't flat. They weigh a bit more (I believe 270g), but are nearly indestructable. The 'Pro' line is nice, too, but the 'Lite' line is probably too thin. Forget their track tubulars.|| |
