Bora one. I suppose you might, but I did not. And I think most people do not. I have no idea what the amount would be.

I ordered a set of Bora One 50 tubulars and a set of Bora One 35 clinchers, both from Starbike and did not get charged import fees either time. This was two years ago.

since i got my Aero72 in tubular.. i love the way it rides.

2 part question:
i carry a can of vittoria pitstop with me in case if i get a flat. but what happens next time if i get another flat? use another can of vittoria pitstop?

is it worthwhile to bring an extra tubular tire? i've heard some suggest to bring a tufo track tubular tires, but how would you install it on the side of the road unless if you use tubular tape or something.

i gave up on vittoria pitstop, tufo extreme works much much better

i carry a tufo <160g tub as a spare - glue the basetape, let it dry, fold it and secure with elastic band, keep in a ziploc freezer bag to protect it, it's only a bit larger than a conti inner tube (tub, pump, tufo, minitool and other stuff all fit in centre rear jersey pocket)

tub on the left, inner tube on the right...

Image

if i get a flat that can't be sealed, pull of the flat tub, put the tufo tub on, inflate as hard as i can manage at least 7bar, it'll stick well enough just avoid hard cornering/braking, ride home, remove tufo and refold, fit a new tub

this is based on glued tubs

For the spare tubular (I suggest the tufo as it is so small), preglue it, let dry and then fold so that the glued sides are facing each other. I have one of those Specalized "bandit" systems under my Power saddle. It is very compact. Also, I run sealant in my tubulars right from the start; I suggest Orange Seal if you do this. But I ride daily so the sealant never sits long in one place.

*edit* whoops too late as sungod covers it. I have had to use the tufo track spare to get home on crappy roads, approx. 20 miles or so, no problem.

that's the <125g, but bear in mind it is a track tyre, very low weight means thin rubber and no extra puncture protection

i use this one, it's a bit heavier, designed for road use and has some extra protection...

That is the one I used. And a lot cheaper than I paid for it. :x

It folds up to the size of a tube.

around europe prices are all over the place, germany is often good if you shop around - need to look at delivery charges too though

Nice! Glad I checked with you all on the Tufo first.

Btw, I know that Veloflex has a tendency to lose air quickly. Last night @ 12:24AM, I finally mounted the rear Veloflex sprinter on my aero72 and pumped it up to 120psi.

Just checked in on it at 9am and I see the psi dropped to 112or so on my lezyne sport floor drive pump. Is that normal?

After a few days they will be completely flat. I couldn't believe the difference between the Conti Comps and the Veloflex Carbons. Comps would hardly drop any psi and the Carbons would loose 5psi on a ride.
