If you have to ask, I would suggest clinchers. People will disagree about the performance of each but most would agree clinchers are much easier to deal with. I have never used tubulars but from the people who have, mostly years ago who switched to clinchers they feel the performance is similiar or at least close enough where the extra troublel isnt worth it.

...and so begins another religious argument!

on the topic of religious arguments are opinions polarized in certain areas ie campag riders prefer tubulars and shimano on clinchers or vice versa?

Not to the extent that anyone has any statistics to support your statement. Some of the "superwheels" that are only available in tubular versions are also only available with Shimano freehubs.
