Tire tech, tech 'creeps' forward ??

https://www.challengetires.com/product/tubular/strada-bianca/pro-h-tltu/22876?cat=gravel

Strada Bianca Pro 30, 33 and 36mm tubeless tubular.

So you bring the little tubeless tire plug kit with you.

This may be something I will watch the reviews going forward, and may actually make me steal some used tubular wheels. Which as far as used carbons wheels seem to have the best steal/deal used and low use.

My last sealant in tubed tubulars ended poorly...


The little tubular devil on poking me in the ear with a pointy little fork.... Rutt Row

Kinda reminds me of the guy that said what attracted him to tubes and vinyl was the inconvenience and expense. All the hassles of glue combined with sealant and possibly no roadside repair combined with great expense.

I like it.

Ahh.. yeah. ;)

Just check that these fatter toobies don't need a more updated/wider rim or something...

I am offering trade for some on local CL. Maybe I got a good chance considering folks are only going to buy shit when it is too good to pass coin wise. Even then, it is sure looking like a lot forks are going to be outta work for a while.

I love it. My 30 years on sew-ups captured in a short paragraph. Likewise a record collection that was replaced entirely by compact discs. 22 years since on clinchers haven't made me look back once. Likewise the only time I use my turntable is to digitize a vinyl record.

Have had a bit of a flood of carbon tubulars pass through of late, still sitting on a pair of 10s American Classic 50mm wheels and a pair of Reynolds 45mm QR disc wheels for some frame with that configuration.
Prices are trending REALLY low, as in used-aluminum-wheel territory.

Tubeless tubular tires would be great IF I had some sort of data as to the performance of particular tires. Not going to buy just any Tufo garden-hose tubulars axcept as with my really old bikes that need tires such as S22's with above-average puncture resistance and especially (mounted) shelf life.
S22's will last forever if partly because nobody much likes riding on them(?).
