There was a time (1998 and before) when the Reflex rim was available as a clincher. The OP replaced the Reflex clincher, and the Reflex tubular continued as is. So it is possible that his Reflex front wheel is a clicher. Not likely, but possible. I agree that clinchers are most likely a better choice.wankski said:its all the same pretty much - the question is do you want a tubular front wheel?
