I am selling a BRAND NEW (never been riden, never even had a tub fitted) handbuilt set of Carbon Tubular Planet-X rims on Spin Cycle Works hubs.
I have been building wheels of all types for nearly 8 years now, as such I have learnt to use the best parts and techniques when lacing and building wheels.
The front wheel has been built using a radial spoke pattern, while the rear is built with a 2-cross lacing pattern on both drive and non-drive sides of the wheel.
I'm planning on getting a new bike soon - a very nice bike. Probably a Ridley Noah.
In looking at wheels the question of tubular v clincher has come up.
I've always used clinchers so I've got no idea whether its worth making the switch to tubs.
What are the benefits ? Supposedly extra comfort, less rolling resistance... anything else ? And the downsides... aren't they hard to change and fit ?
And has anyone used the Shimano Tubeless carbon ?
There aren’t too many tubulars out there that are cheaper than the Continental Giro. Sure, you can find some, but this is certainly at the budget end of the market and it’s billed as an ‘inexpensive training tubular’. Bear that in mind and don’t go expecting a top level racing performance. But as an off-season run-around, it’s fine.
