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.
You got it Wim. Years ago when everyone rode tubulars, that's how we'd fold them. Then it was the same as you - an old toe strap (it HAD to be an Alfredo Binda) and thin (but robust) plastic to wrap the tub in.
