I'm looking for new skins. I found these clincher tubulars (tubulars for clincher rims), and I'm wondering what the deal is? good idea--gimmick--whats up with them?

Some people like them. Some find them worse than useless. YMMV.

I ride with lots of folks at different ability levels, and most have heard of them, but no one I know uses them.
Not sure that really helps.:idea:

Only if you pump them up to normal pressures.
If you need a tire (tubie) that has to be pumped up to 160 psi (track/tt), Tufo's are one way to go.

That's funny, especially since Tufo is in the Czech Republic.....
That's funny, because I get mine from the local supermarket. Great source of protein.

I would recommend reading the reviews on this site on Tufo clinchers. The reviews are actually quite favorable and in my experience, it has been positive. Going on 4 years, 3 different tufo tire models and they have all been an exceptional experience compared to my conventional clincher tires.
