How to: Glue your tires Belgian style



The only real excuse for not using tubular tires for cyclocross is that you dont know or are afraid of how to glue them on. Glue? Hows that supposed to hold a tire you might ask?

Well, Velonews wrote up a good little piece on how to do it right.

"All of the top guys in Europe use this method," he says. "The tape makes a bond that is much better and the chances of rolling a tire are next to nil."

So now, go out there and find yourself some tubular wheels, some Tufo tires and get your glue on. The season is soon.
