On glues, Shellac or comparing the two?

The only (public) testing I've ever seen shared on shellac was a long time ago on Biketechreview (roughly 15-20 years ago, it might have also been on the google wattage group at some point) and it was better than tubular glue, but again... it was better than old continental/etc glue of the period for that person.
I've never seen anyone share data on epoxy, mainly because it pretty much ruins the wheel.

Tubular (glued) tests on rollers are tough to standardize as well... as two tires glued by the same person the same "style" can have a fair amount of difference. That's why a lot of tubulars are tested on rollers without glue, just pressure holding them on so you can remove that variable from the crr results.
