Phil and All,

Once upon a time, books served this purpose quite nicely. No one seems to have time to read anymore, but always enough time to watch a video!! Is this a by product of the sound bite generation?

I learned how to mount tubulars (30+ years ago) by reading the instructions which were included with the Vittorias I bought to replace the worn-out Clements which came on my PX-10. I read, I tried, I experimented, I got sticky, I learned.........I think this approach would still work, but it is nice to have someone show you how to do something (as I have done for some people with mounting tubulars - in some cases for bike shop owners!!!). Patience is certainly a key.

I don't think even Hollywood is ready for Baylis!!
