|Sew-up v. Clincher for racing??||Quack|
Mar 22, 2002 10:26 AM
|Does anyone out there have any data on percentages of riders running sew-ups v. clinchers. I am aware of the advantages/disadvantages of both designs but was wondering how many people actually still race on sew-ups.
Thanks in advance!!

|and so does 6 out of 10 guys on my team. Not to say that it's that much % in the races I do, it probably isn't but I appreciate the ride they give and have them for races only so it's not much hassle to glue them up every year.|

For the longest time I always used one set of rims for both training and racing. Old school at it's best.
The last three years I have used tubulars with my Nucleons. Will never go back to clinchers for racing situations again.

|Train on clinchers (cost.)
Race on sew-ups (feel, handling, weight, safety.)
I'd train on sew-ups if I could afford $70 flats.
