Clinchers vs Tubulars? by kiwicyclist

Like nearly all of us I primarily ride clinchers on the road.  However I race on tubulars on the track and they are fantastic to ride.

From time to time I’ve mulled over tubulars for the road – for one thing they might be more ‘period’ correct for some of the bikes I ride and for another they make good sense for a light race set of wheels for crits etc.

I stumbled across the following article on roadbikereview which contains some interesting comments on the merits of tubs vs clinchers and compares different offerings.


Interested to hear Marcus’ comments on his tubeless Hutchinsons….

Given most of the tori struggle with changing a clincher I think this debate might be a moot point! As for tubeless tyres, so far, they seem to “feel” better than clinchers (but am riding them on far superior wheels, so don’t rely on that), I can run them at lower pressure and other than my infamous tyre cut at Kinglake, have not had an issue with flats. Jury still out on their resistance to flats – will report back after a winter on them.
