I'm not looking for a debate of tubulars versus clinchers. I'm ready to purchase a set of carbon wheels for my Trek Pilot and my LBS dealer who I have a lot of respect for is directing me toward tubular. I'ver done my homework and scoured these forums and am aware of the advantages of clinchers for repairs in the field. But I'm willing to put up with the inconvenience of dealing with tubulars for a potentially superior ride. So please no need for a debate, clincher riders need not respond. Here's where I'm looking for help from you tubular riders. I would really appreciate hearing from you as to exactly what it is that you find superior about the tubular ride that makes it worth the hassle of repairs, gluing, etc. Can you put into words what it is you prefer about the "feel" of tubulars? How exactly do they ride better? What about the ride do you feel is superior to clinchers that makes it all worthwhile? Many on these forums have written about the superior "ride" of tubulars but it has been in generalities. Can you please try to put into words specifically what it is you are feeling and prefer? Your responses would be greatly appreciated.
