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.
Thank you for your feedback.
