Interesting read that Kieran could prehaps be the happy medium there to go for as you can always carry a inner tube should the sealant not seal up the tyre.

Have to say friend of mine runs MTB tubless and has done for years never had a puncture. Just looks like there isnt many tyre companies making them.

What does everybody else think ??

Obviously Mal knows his stuff and has basically summed it up perfectly well.

I ride tubulars because, they're the safest choice, when glued to the rim properly of course. I too have finished a race on a flat tub...try doing that on a clincher! Older bike fans might remember Olano winning the World Champs in Columbia, basically riding at 25mph on a flat tubular.

You can ride much lower pressure without fear of pinch flats, more comfortable ride and better grip on slippy cobbles/climbs.... Ronde van Calderdale anyone? You can also run much higher pressure.

I've been on clinchers this winter and in 3 months I must've had more flats than I've had riding tubs for the last 10 years. I will say though modern clinchers are just as fast as tubs, or they feel that way to me anyway.

I like the whole process of maturing a tubular, preparing and fitting it, I'm a bit sad like that.

Clinchers are perfectly fine for the sort of riding everyone in this club does but after my winter on them I can't wait to get the tubs back on.

Cheers, I'll have 3 please. I hear from Dr Darren, our resident tubologist, that the more mature the better. Like wine eh. Make sure they're a good year and not corked! !

Thanks again

Great replies cheers gents.

Tempted by some of these what does everyone think in tubular version....... (or would a set of Mavic Ksyrium Elite be just as good ?)
