    so with a tubular, you can limp home. how good is that spare going to be? can you descend at 35 mph?

    I would. You'd have to decide for yourself. Good glue bed on rim, good glue on spare, 100psi, no problem for me.

    I dunno if I'd go bombing down hills at 35, but it's hardly an issue. Tubulars just don't flat that much. Less than clinchers by far in my experience. Besides, if you flat a clincher on that same 35 mph downhill please don't be riding in front of me.

    Lots of good, experienced riders here ride them all the time.

    more so than pinch flats, i'm constantly dealing with broken glass- either car window glass in it's small pebble form, or beer bottle glass. i'm not sure what it's like where you ride, but i went for my typical long ride today, and even when i was outside the city, there was glass everywhere.

    i don't mean to go off topic from darren's wonderful new steed, i'm curious as i see so many bikes running tubes here.

    roman- i would only buy a set if i knew that i could use it everyday with confidence. i'm not interested in a race-only wheel set for CP, PP, or even FBF. i'd like to be able to ride everyday, everywhere.

    Everywhere I ride, I ride with my Veloflexes. The window glass is not usually the issue. I go over my tubulars frequently to pick out the shit I pick up on the road like glass splinters. I use Campagnolo Nucleons with Veloflexes and they work great.

    But yeah, I'd like to hear more about this Richard Sachs bike too. How's it different from the previous Richard Sachs? Seriously. Looks great! I wish I had one.

    .
    The three bikes I ride at the moment have tubs. I get fewer flats than I do with clinchers. When I am riding somewhere I know that has lots of glass I'll usually grab the bike with the conti sprinters. I also don't ride in gutters, but that saves all tires. ATMO people way over think the problems with tubulars, there are none really.

    Some tubular tires and rims are better left for race day. I ride Vittoria pave tubulars on nemesis rims in all sorts of road dirt. Vittoria does cut a bit more easily, it seems to me. Go with what Jon said about the contis, too. Just don't buy a cheap Vittoria rally and think that you're doing yourself a favor by throwing a cheaper, more expendable tire on there. The better ones don't flat as much.

    That said, you could throw on an expensive tire and flat in the first mile with somehting that would flatten a clincher, too. Youse take your chances.

    Look at this bike. Those are Vittoria pave tubulars glued on to Ambrosio nemesis rims. Tough stuff, fast, too.

    Darren,

    Awesome bike.

    Are those ovals the deep or shallow version?

    its beautiful. i'm literally dying to ride one. i hate that its not gonna be here till i'm fifty. but if i slow down too much before then i'll just dope. life's too short to beat myself up for waiting til the last minute to order one and now...
    its a prime motivator to go out and ride and not lose any fitness for the next few years.... so i can still roll by the time its my turn.

    sometimes i wake up at night panicked that my number will come up and ill be short of cash.

    its a haunting.

    the bike looks gorgeous and perfect.

    I don't really know you, but if that does happen I'll help you out. It's sort of like my dad pushing me in sport so he can live his life through me. I'll essentially be living my lust for an RS through you.

    That took about 5 minutes to type. I've drunk too much beer.
