Glue..

Use glue. And if you don't know how to glue tires, find someone who does, and ask them to show you and teach you how to do it. Tape works OK, but it could prove problematic. Glue is the best way to go.

I use the extreme tape with Zipps, but I use glue as well. For me, this is the most sturdy method I've found and it was originally used for cyclocross tubulars. Strong enough for 'cross, strong enough for the road. But my method is a little overkill. It's described on the bikeman.com website.

I use the extreme tufo tape on all my zipps (303, 404 and disc) with good result. The tape is very strong and it was a challenge to remove the tubular when I flatted after rolling thru some glass.

Don't use Tufo tape on non-Tufo tires, unless you never plan on repairing them.
