Gluing tire with a base coat already on a rim
Step 1: Clean and inspect the rim for aces glue
Step 2: Apply a single coat of glue and let it dry for 6 hours
That way you want have problems adjusting the tire
Step3: Put the tire on and inflate to 1.5-2 bars
Step 4: adjust tire using
All the way from the edge of the rim and a point(edge) of the tire.
So when it start to go up or down on one side you can adjust it accordingly with more precision.
Tire is now straight, no hoping and no way you can pull it off with just your hands. I am doing a lot of descent, even at 90kmh, hard breaking and cornering and no problems.
Use the same stitching pattern as used on the original tyre and keep it tight enough in order not to face any bulges after the job's done.
Too tight and you'll have a dip. not tight enough will end up in a bulge...
Mind you, happened to me as well when I thought I'd done some fine sewing just to be appalled by the sight of a bulge later on.
Even redid to flaming thing on one occasion. Still no good.
Anyway, don't worry.
You're still on my list of candidates for my tubular knitting club membership early 2050.

But a butyl inner tube instead of a latex one?
Thanks but no thanks, I'd rather pour some liquid latex in and be done with it or repair the flamin' thing by hand myself.
Now if Tirealert would fit the latex inner tube of my choice it would be a different story...If I lived in the US of A.
Might buy these new ones and see if they are improved. I suspect apart from the tread, the carcass is the same as it always was.
I must be the ultimate snob, I'd even consider Conti Comps as training tubulars I'd rather avoid training on.....
P.S. Why ride tubulars that ride like mediocre clinchers anyway?

I just use a basic over-under /|/|/|/|/| pattern through the existing holes, but occasionally the repair ends up with a bulge. Also I know people use dental floss as thread sometimes, anyone used this before?
I use an X pattern XXXXXX which basically means sewing /|/|/|/|/|/| one way and then \|\|\|\|\|\| the other way.
Most of the times I get the repair perfect but some times I have to redo it if I get a bulge or a dip (which is a major pain...)
I used to use dental floss with excellent results but Francois from FMB sent me some thread so now I use that one. When I use it all up (not too soon I hope) I am back to dental floss.

I've got one here (to use as a spare) and despite the picture the base tape is a light tan colour not black (like the Competitions) so you get a thin ring of this showing when the tyre is mounted.
Not a problem if you're not fussed about the looks, but still something not clear from Conti's pictures.
I never had a problem using the X pattern mentioned above regardless of the original pattern of the tire. My problem was always the correct tension.
If you make it too loose you end with a bump, if you make it too tight you have a dip in your tire.
