Gluing tubulars doesn't have to be a headache.

Now even lighter and easier to install than previous versions, Tufo Gluing Tape is a great alternative to fumbling with messy cement and is one of the strongest and easiest ways to get tubular tires on you rim and keep them there.

Pressure-activated installation is simple: remove the backing, secure the tape to the rim, mount the tire, and inflate to pressure to activate the adhesive. Then you're all set! 19mm x 2mm. One package is enough for one tire and one rim.

I have three sets of tubular wheels needing new tires each year. The tape has made this spring ritual so much more easier. This is my first time removing the tape, so I can't comment on the tape removal as of yet.

I've used glue and tape. The tape is quick and easy...way less messy. I take the turns fast and am not one bit worried about rolling a tire.

Ive used this tape for 2years with Zipp 404 and ENVE SES 6.7 It always works well.

And it saves some money and time to set your new tire.

I like the fact you can take the old tape off with care and have very little residual adhesive left on the carbon tubular wheel then retape with the new strip and place the prior stretched tubular on the rim. There is no mess and I start riding after I pull the reddish-clear tape off a semi inflated properly centered tire and take the air pressure up to tire specs. Been using this tape for years on all my carbon tubular Zipp wheels without any incidents.

I like how fast and easy it is to mount the tire compared to glue. When I change tires the glue tape comes off with the tire, leaving minimal sticky stuff behind to clean up before mounting a new tire. This is nice until I want to change out a flat while on a ride. If the tire has been glued there will be enough glue residue to mount a fresh tire and at least get home (no fast corners though). If the tape comes off clean with the tire there's nothing there to hold the tire on. Up goes the thumb! Just remember to use your Stans and don't get a flat.

Yes, it's heavier, and yes, it's weight at the rim, compared to glue. But if you want quick roadside repair and immediate strong tire to rim adhesion as you roll out from changing your tire, you gotta go tape over glue. Because it is a compromise on weight versus glue, I give four stars instead of five, but it's a compromise I feel is fully justified.

This is my first time using this product,was a little leary about it at first,as I have always used glue to mount my tires. I got tired of the mess that gluing presents. Had to get all the old glue of my carbon rims,the tape went down very easy,followed the instruction,even viewed a few online videos of this process. Also you have all the time in the world to get the tires aligned on the rims. NICE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I never glue anymore, I've never had any issues with this stuff as long as I'm careful to remove the old tape, and do a decent cleanup. I've ridden on this pretty hard over long distances, never had any issues at all. I mostly use it on Continental tires, the backer is pretty course but again no issues...

Using Tufo Gluing Tape is a major time saver, and works well. I've used this tape on many different mfg tubular tire without any issue on both my CritRoad Racing wheels, and track wheels.

I apply a thin layer of glue on my carbon wheels (let dry) prior to installing the tape. This makes it easier to remove the tape from rim..

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.

It's nearly impossible to center a tubular tire on the wheel using glue, resulting in a wobble and a sticky mess. The tape is easy to apply, clean, and allows for perfect seating of the tire. Only then the 2nd protective film is removed from the sticky tape, and voil - a perfectly mounted tire. Don't forget to take it for a very short ride right afterwards to cement the tire in place!

I ride Continental Competitions at 155lbs on Campy Shamal Ultra II's. It takes about 2 hours to change tires but heck of a lot easier and quicker than gluing. Most of that 2 hours is cleaning the wheel. I pull the old tire off. Let the wheel sit in the sun for a little while (depends on how much other stuff I have to do but hour). Then carefully peel away the old tape. Usually comes off pretty clean. The I wrap twine around a couple of time and tie-off followed by a generous coating of glue gone. Let that sit for 15-20 mins then take a plastic tire iron and scrape-off. 99.5% of the old glue comes-off quickly followed by touch-up in a few places. Next I spray the wheel with a little contact cleaner to make sure no residue, then lay-on new tape. Mount the tire and let sit overnight. I ride the curvy hills north of SF and confidently ride 35-43 mph on the downhills (Big Rock and SFD past Fairfax). Never a problem!

Wow! Can't believe how easy this was to install! We'll see if it keeps the tire on the rim and how easy it is to remove and put on another tire. Decided to go with this after reading numerous horror stories about glue....why spend over a day waiting for layers and layers of glue to dry when this tape takes 2 minutes.

I've glued about 12 tubulars with this tape. It goes on pretty tidy and I feel confident in the hold it provides. Worth spending some time on Youtube to get the tips and tricks of application. I'm never using glue on road tubulars again.
