I recently bought mt first set of tubular wheels to try out. I'm trying to figure out the best place to carry the spare tubular tire when I ride. I can fit it in a jersey pocket - although sometimes that gets crowded. Where do you guys carry your spare?

Well, I don't do tubulars any more. But for many years, I strapped my expertly folded spare (see photo) under my saddle with a leather toe strap. Some people wrapped their spare with a piece of plastic, put it into an old sock or into a small, store-bought bag. Protecting it does make sense—the strap can chafe the sidewalls and break some threads.
Thanks for that pic! I was folding it in half, and half again, and it wasn't getting very small.
