How to change a punctured tubular (for triathletes and time triallists)

March 25, 2012

If you are riding tubulars (singles) in a triathlon or time trial and get a dreaded puncture, watch this short clip for some tips on how to change it quickly and efficiently.

NOTE for triathletes and time triallists, when I glue on tubulars, I leave a very small gap in the glue so that the tyre can be ripped off in a matter of seconds. Without such a gap, you literally need a screwdriver to wrench the tyre off, losing potentially minutes. I talk a little bit about this too in the clip. (For road and track cyclists, no such gap would be left because you are cornering at high speeds).
