Read if you are new to tubular, My comment will help you. Awesome product.
Another seller by mistake shipped me a set of tubular wheel instead of clincher. I dealt with that seller and decided to use them.
Yes I had fear of getting flat on the road and also fear of improper gluing/mounting tire techniques which seems like so time consuming with glue.
I tried my best to educate myself about how to use tubular wheels by searching and reading on internet. I learned alot.
This product is very easy to use. watch youtube videos and learn how to use it and you are good to go. Here are some of the answeres to your questions...
FYI I bought Tufo S33 tubular tires to be more compatible with Tufo tapes.
-Is it reliable on turns?
The glue sticks very well. So sticky that I don't feel it fails in fast turns.
Ask someone with more experince especially in hot weather. To me it is reliable.
-How fast is it ready to ride on?
I think as soon as you mount and pump the tire. but I did it the night before I go for ride.
-Flat on the road
If the sealant doesn't work or you decide to change the tire on the road, you can mount your prestreched(I don't preglue) new tire on the same tape on the road (avoid dirt) there is enough left over glue on the tape (both sides, wheel side of the tape and tire side of the tape) to hold the new tire in place and get you home. No fast turns though.
When you get home I recommend to peel off the old tape and use a new tape.
Although you can change the tape on the road, I don't recommend it because of dirt.
-Is it hard to peel off the tape from the wheel?
Not that hard to peel off. In my experience the whole tape came off and didn't leave pieces on the wheel. prepare the wheel for next tape with Acetone and smooth sand paper. Not too much wrok (1-2 minute).
I am satisfied with this product because as lazy as I am, I didn't have to deal with hassle of gluing.
Thank you for your feedback.
