    Oval is great stuff, hardly pedestrian. More like Peddie.

    In every pic I have ever seen of a Sachs, the bikes always appear perfectly balanced...extended seat post vs. head tube...everything is in synch and symmetrical. Nothing appears overly aggressive nor relaxed, just balanced and in harmony. If they ride as well as they look, the experience must be sublime.

    "modern" round bend bars with gooves for cables were not readily available 5 years ago,
    only the deda was somewhat available if you knew which sources to tap. It's an absolute

    with great shapes.

    waiting for the glue to dry on a tubular doesn't please my teammates- especially when it's hovering around 30 degrees. you should have seen the looks they gave me when i didn't have winter tires on and flatted back in january. i can't imagine the roads are any better in Ma than they are in the NYC metro area. i'd love to run tubular wheels, but it's not an option on a team ride. maybe when i roll solo i can afford to wait a few minutes for glue to dry- but it's not ideal, is it?

    then again, i am a tubie newbie, so maybe i'm missing something.

    in the event you have to change a tubular on the road, you don't need to apply fresh glue again or wait for anything to dry- you will have already pre-glued the spare.

    it doesn't take long at all to change a road tubular whilst on the road. What's a winter tire?

    you season the new tubular tire in oatmeal for at least six months, after you remove the latex basecoat. it gives you a new, and different sensation as you ride the bike.

    Roman I followed the direction on the back of the box and put the tire and oatmeal in the micro wave for 2min 30 secs. I think it is now a studded winter tire.

    Six months, minimum, ryde. You have to suffer in order to ride tubulars. But, if you succeed, you are rewarded with new and different sensations every time you ride them. Tubulars are the Irish rolled oatmeal that comes in a can, not the little packet that you tear the top off of and throw in the nuker.

    Couldn't I achieve the same effect with a large variety of bikes?
    GO!

    I remember doing a ride with a Wheelworks rider back in college. He was riding tubulars and flatted, and it only took him about five minutes to switch out tires. I was so impressed!

    Ride a tire for a while, or till you want a new one on there. Keep it as a spare. The residual glue on the tire and rim will get you home unless you're descending the alps or showing off big time. I find them easier to change than clinchers. A used tire goes on really fast.

    I learned that from Bernard Hinault, he also told me never to name drop.
