|Does anyone have directions to glue tubulars onto a rim? maybe an article or website with pictures? I was hoping to get my LBS to put them on and show me, but it turns out im getting an amazing deal online. Also, the things to do when i flat during an event? how to put a "preglued" tire on? any advice would be great.|

|This is a pretty good step by step guide:
Someone here recommended the Tufo glue strips and I think this is the way to go. Much easier and less messy. I only use the strips now.

|thanks, but if i do use the tufo rim tape, which sounds like the ideal way to go since im starting out with tubular tires, how do i go about "taping" the tire onto the rim?|

|... fundamentally, it's double sided tape that "activates" when you air up your tube and take a short, slow spin round ghe neighborhood...
Relatively easy to apply... just watch out for pet hairs (or your own if it's long enough).

I use both tape and glue... can't say I'll give one or the other up (look at a glueup as a kind of rite of passage and a discipline)
Repairing a flatted tubular during an event is event dependent (note: generally, don't actually repair a tubie during a race... you either replace the casing or depending on the event, the entire wheel).
