    Now that I have my FMBs in hand I see the coating on the regular version, and that will be sufficient for me until they get some use.

    BTW, the Pro version is also slightly less supple because of that extra layer.

    Did not read everything but this guy states that the PR uses butyl tubes. That's complete BS.

    I thought the bloke behind FMB was Francois Marie, but the article clearly states his name is Francois Marie Boyaux, just shows what I know - he was obviously born to make tubulars with a name like that!

    Yeah I know - I was just trolling!
    It's difficult to believe how little research some folks do before they put their name to an article on the internets - you think they'd at least know what the French for tubular is when writing about a French tubular manufacturer

    Got this today. It seems like its ok quality. I wont have to change sizes for a while. Just used it on my first frame. It didn't take much, just cleaned a couple high spots. Post slips in nicely.

    I know this is probably not the best thread to ask these questions but a few of you already offered some awesome advice to me here about tubulars.

    Tubulars have been stretched on rims for 48 + hours
    2 thin coats of glue are now dry on rim
    1 coat of glue is dry on base tape
    I plan to do one final coat on each and mount wet
    Practiced getting the Veloflex tires on rims when they were without glue and got the hang of it pretty quickly

    I think the rest is clear, except I could use some advice on aligning the tires. In my practice runs I was adjusting the tubulars so that the same amount of base tape was peaking above the rim on both sides all the way around. The tire seemed to spin pretty damn straight. But I could notice the rubber part of the tread where it meets the skinwall wasn't completely even when I spun the wheel? Is that normal? Should I be trying to use that edge (where the tread meets the skinwall) as my basis for alignment?

    Sort of hard to describe but I hope that makes sense.

    It's more important that the valve is straight, the tire has no humps and that the tread is centered as opposed to the base tape being evenly spaced. Try a dry run with your front wheel in the fork with the frame turned upside down. I do the same with the rear wheel in the frame with the frame upside down. A little tougher with the drivetrain in place. Look up Fixednwinter as he's in Toronto...my tubbie guru.
