Tomorrow, 02-22-2022, is TWOTALLY TWOBULAR TWOSDAY!

Post a picture of your tubular tire equipped bike out on a ride on this infamous day! Remember, show two tires or it won't count.

Aw, come on, Bob. You need to up the ante: Show us your TWO matching bikes equipped with two twobulars! Extra points if they are two T(w)oeis.

I run sew-ups when period and model correct to do so - most of the time. I find them to offer good performance but to be a paint in the butt to install and maintain. Maintenance consists of two things - pump to specified pressure and replace if they flat out. I do like the smell of the glue though!-)

1959 Rabeneick 120d...



1969 Atala Professional...


1972 Peugeot P10...



In a month or two or three, depending on when Mother Nature releases Canada from Winter, I will take this sew-up steed out for a test ride. It will remain fitted with tubulars since that is the way it was issued...

How about two holes in a single puncture of a tubular?
This was a "snakebite" puncture on the first ride of a new Conti Sprinter. It was near dusk and I didn't see this rock on the shoulder of the road. Ugh!
For those who say you can't get a snakebite puncture on a tubular, I have to disagree....



This is the bike being ridden...



I did get the snakebite patched, although I hadn't expected that it would be so hard to find a puncture when there was no damage to the tread. A bit of detective work soon revealed the approximate location, though.

edit: probably should not have led with this pair - but they have been together so long Veloflex rear, Conti front. It works.

Here I am at the very first Eroica CA heading for the french fries at Olea Farms. I had just ridden up the steep part of their road (close to the main road), in a much too big gear, at least for me (44 or 45x28). I wanted to barf up a lung. This photo is from about 75 yards past where I stopped until my heart rate came back from quadruple digits, and I was feeling like crap. Not so much that I forgot to stand for the photo, but I was hurtin' for certain.

The frame is a 1961 Bianchi Competizione (4-5 cms too small for me) with period-appropriate parts, including tubulars (low-end Continentals). Campy NR crank with 151mm bcd. Campy NR high flange hubs. Brooks saddle. Campy pedals, Christophe clips, and the aforementioned Alfredo Bind Extra straps.

I rode tubulars on the same bike for another Eroica CA (the last one in Paso Robles) and haven't used either since. I doubt I ever will ride tubulars or that frame ever again. Not even for Eroica.

Oh, here's a better pic of the bike in question as shown in my previous post.

It was a barn find (literally) almost 50 years ago. It has since been repainted by Ed Litton

I knew this would happen. I'd start a thread the day before--- as a reminder--- and you bike nuts (sic) would start posting pictures today. Pictures taken or posted today, on Monday 02-21-2022, or taken earlier--- don't count! Come on let's get with the program!

As iffffffffff--- randyjawa is currently experiencing that type of weather in Ottawa in February--- talk about global warming!

steelbikeguy has posted the type of picture I hope we can view tomorrow. Selfies while we ride. I was also thinking about pictures with tomorrow's newspapers. Or some other way to creatively display the date.

Okay--- get ready to ride!
