You only live once so im going to treat the new bike to some carbon 50 wheels, riding with the Whitestone Wheelers (Nuneaton) i need to upgrade my kit and get some carbon bling
looking forward to fitting the new tubular tyres (glued in or taped) instructions here at BIKERADAR, some long winded video on youtube here its going to be dirty glued up fingers for the next few days 🙂 all good fun always good to learn something new
another guide here and there’s more TAPE or GLUE jesus my head hurts (Continental Carbon Rim Tubular Cement 200g Tin bought £15.18 Ebay)
bought some Continental Sprinter Tubular Tyre Gatorskin – 28″ x 22mm – Black/Black DuraSkin not cheap @ £42 each, luckily CRC have £12 off so a bit lighter on the pocket not a cheap affair but its done lucking forward to some faster smoother rides
