Re: The Wheels go round...

I'd only ever race on tubs! Had a nasty experience in Tour de Langkawi back in 1999 when descending and a clincher blew and rolled... really 'blew' my confidence in them after that. But for everyday riding clinchers are just fine... plus the progression since then is amazing. My race wheels would raise a few eyebrows these days: Ambrosio box-section rims on Dura-Ace hubs!  ;) Old skool flavour! I've still got my pair of Mavic SSC wheels from 89... bomb-proof! Shame it's got a screw-on block rather than a 10sp cassette!
