POLL: best tubular tire glue...karlooz

...for durability, ease of installation, overall adhesion. red or clear glue?

OT: where can i find the best deals on vittoria corsa cx tubies? -AND- will latex sealant (Tufo, liquid latex, mold builder, slime) seal punctures on vittoria's latex tubes?

thx

Avoid red glue at all costs, it is messy and does not hold well. 3M FastTack is the best glue. It is a little tricky to work with because it sets up quickly but it holds the best.

already bought a cans worth. They are a pain in the a$$ to get on. But once on they hole up well .. I think. As for deals on the vittoria's, I would check out sdeals.com

Tubasti is a pain, but MAN that stuff stays on tight. I used 3M Fast tack until i read on the ZIPP web site that they recommend NOT using it because it can cause the cloth tape underneath to separate from the tire. Never happened to me but it'd hate to find out the hard way. I jsut gave the Hutchinson glue a try. Seems to be working ok and is pretty easy to clean up.
