On my road bike, I only ride tubular (ever since I started racing in 1982).  I had a bad experience in 1992 when some of the first "race capable" clinchers came out.  I was maybe in 20th spot or so in the main group and a guy going around a corner pick flat'ed on his brand new clinchers resulting in a massive pile up.  I ended up going upside down and landing full force on someone's chain-ring.  It went through my quad within an inch of the bone, several hundred sticks and staples later I just said no to clinchers.

As a side note, I love showing up to races on my ancient Mavic Mach 2CD's.  Heavy, stiff and durable. :D
