Corima? 11 speed (with cassette) and $450? Few small marks but price is right ;) Conti rear tyre or Corsa Evo, can't remember. It's only 74km old.

Just reading this again and see it comes with tyre

 Is it a tubbie? That would explain the price etc..? Aren't tubs a pain in bum?

Yeah I am starting to think at this price it is worth taking a trip to the dark side... just looking at youtubes (and old threads) about how much of a ballache it is...

Just switched to tubbies. They are a PITA initially as I was flying blind. If I knew then what I know now, would have been much easier i.e using tape instead of glue, how to remove old glue, tyre selection, sealant, what to carry in a race etc etc I would definitely recommend the switch though.

Funny As I've been trying to pm you about your historic experiences with the renn discs and your recent switch to tubs.. thanks for chiming in... (still torn though)

Sorry my inbox was full. All clear now.

if you can find a good clincher disc at a decent price, perhaps go for that if you don't want to go through the initial PITA stage that I went through with tubbies. Although I've got some pretty good tips that will lessen the punishment!  I watched all the YouTube videos too, 3 day gluing process.... I'm thinking WTF....  but with the Caden tape (free from Ben) takes 10 mins to tape a wheel. 

Renn disc was good. I liked it, cheap, well built and fast. Made a great sound too. I prefer my Zipp 900 though, quicker and stiffer. I got it 2nd hand for the same price as the Renn, only used twice. So some bargains out thee if you do go for tubbies.

Yeah there seems to be plenty of used tubs around the same price as new clincher so i was going the clincher but willies is about half the price...

As you can see there's a few light. Marks on it from travel etc. But I'll pump it up now and go ride to work and back on it (need to pick something up) and let you know how it goes.

Used tubs same price as new clincher? As in Disc?? I'm seeing Zipp 900s, Sub 9s (tubs) little use going for $600 - $700. There's a guy in Brissie selling a Sub9/404 wheelset for $1k.

 

But if you do get a tubbie disc, you're going to want a tubbie front. So that could be a problem. You definitely don't want to be riding with one tub and 1 clincher.

One of each was exactly what i was planning... just not taking a spare run at all...

 

My head hurts..

What front wheel have you got? And are you doing 70.3s and Fulls or just shorter stuff?

Personally I'd stick to trying to find a well priced clincher disc, rather than running a clincher and a tub. Or selling your front and buying a tub wheelset. But I suppose it only really matters if you flat.

I've never flatted in a race on a tubbie. I only ever carried a spare once. I lost it (Geelong 70.3) and never bothered again.

Did you make it to work and back?  Any strava cups to verify the speed...? 😁

It's fine. Couple of songs but structurally ok. The price is right (cheap) so I'm not worried about the dings. Conti competition tubular that's not too old on as well. I can Chuck in a tubular front for another 150 if you want. Matches disc but is only 50mm deep. But smooth lime butter :) oh and wheel bags. You can have some.
