Tubular Cement

I finally went back to tubulars for cross after a couple costly mishaps on tubeless. (I raced tubeless for four years and think they're great it's just a matter of rim width etc.) Anyhow if you buy the big cans of Mastik One it can get dried out. Each tube is good for a wheel's worth (two layers on the rim, tape, a layer or two on the tire, good to go). The glue is really light-remember it's about thin layers, not glooping it on. This is a much better way to go than the big cans.

As good as any glue I have used. Comes in a convenient tube or in the mulit use can.

I have used both the Vittoria Mastik and the Continental tubular glue. I find the Vittoria Mastik to be just as good or better than Continental glue. The can of Vittoria Mastik is usually a great value. I use the Vittoria Mastik for both road and cyclocross tires.

Great product

I used this in my garage to glue two Conti tubulars. Tires are still on the rims, so I am happy with the product.

Does the job!

I use Mastik to mount cyclocross tubulars, and have had no concerns about rolled tires. Mastik supposedly works equally well on carbon and aluminum rims, which makes it a good all-purpose glue.

One caution Mastik sets up fast in my experience. Once I mount the tire, I gotta hurry to align the tire on the rim. Ambient temperature probably affects this,

so if you lack a cool, well ventilated workspace, make sure to mount your tires carefully and quickly.

This stuff is the way to go...

Really great, secure glue - the only way to mount tubulars if you're serious about doing it right. while not as easy as Tufo tape, the tire is more secure and rolls faster with glue. The downsides are fumes, clean-up, and re-gluing. Fumes are nasty, so you need really good ventilation. Clean-up is hard because the glue dries so fast and you need to use potent solvents like Goof Off or acetone. So I use cheap disposable glue brushes from the hardware store, and nitrile gloves. Getting old, dried out glue off of the rim is a major chore that involves lots of scraping and solvent. One trick I found on the web use solvent to thin the cement before applying to the rim (not the tire). This allows easier spreading and thinner, more even coats. Vittoria's gluing recipe two thin coats on the rime, 24 hrs apart, let both coats dry completely. One coat on the tire, let dry at least 24 hours. Finally, 1 more thin coat on the wheel and mount tire immediately while glue is still tacky (within minutes of applying glue). Do it carefully and the tire will be secure.

One of those things...

... that you just do without asking questions. Use Mastik. Moreover, they say that if you're running a Vittoria, then you absolutely must, btw. That probably goes for all the tires that look very much like they're made by Vittoria as well (Vred tubies, Mavic tubies, the Michelin tubie we have...). Use it. Use lots. Give it time to dry and it. will. stick. for. ever.
