And those annoying silk tubulars! That loud Shuush! Shuush! giving you away as you tried to sprint past the peloton! (like that would be me!) Glad I'm sticking to clinchers these days (tongue firmly in cheek).

If you've never tried tubulars, you're much better off, the noise, glue, spares, the glue! What a PITA! You really DON'T want to get spoiled by THAT ride.

Happy trails,

Deleted stuff ... I, too, hate the extra ratcheting and other noises associated with

the more-modern drive trains and noisier wheels. Sew-ups on SC Arc-en- ciel rims with Campi hubs were my quietest (and highest-maintenance) wheels ever, but the high cost of new rims and tires beat me up during my cash-poor college years.
