I was a little nervous when i changed from Meilenstein clincher to Obie tubular.
Doesn't even bother me now. Ive had one puncture in over a year, i managed to get home with Mariposa sealant, but didnt work to well so have changed to Orange Seal. Heard great reports about it from others on this forum.
The Tubs are lighter by 250g so definitely a great weight saving.
You could always carry a light Tufo tyre for piece of mind or worse case call a cab.
Ive had less punctures with the tubs so i now feel more confident.

I will have to take the plunge next time!

In all honesty, the Bora 35 One clinchers with Vittoria Corsa SCs ride beautifully and forking out another £1100-1200 for tubs at this stage would be a bit much. Instead, I plan to take my new bike to Majorca and Gran Canaria for some climbing! 8)

They say it should come only in Celeste, but Bianchi is beautiful in every colour!
