tubulars(3 posts)

Aug 9, 2001 2:45 AM
I mounted up two new conti comp tubulars, and also prepared one spare which I carry on the bike, and have raced on them twice this year. Is there anything I should do with them now??...planning on racing IM Hawaii on the same set, but not sure if I should do anything with the spare, i.e. whether it needs more/new glue, or what have you. Also, if I wanted to "practice" changing the tires, could I remount them once I get them off? If so, should I reglue them? Any help/guidance is appreciated...

You can remove and reglue tubulars a number of times and it is something I would recommend doind every spring if you haven't ridden for a while since the glue can badly dry out if the wheels aren't used for a while. When you put them on definately reglue them. You also might want to make sure the spare tire is properly streched before racing with it. Put it on a spare rim patially inflated so it will mount easier when the need arises. TTFN
