    I've heard this all before... I don't buy it.
    It's possible to justify any cycling purchase if you spend enough time convincing yourself of the relative benefits.
    I could submit my own batch of anecdotal evidence that tubs are no more reliable than clinchers and that pitstop doesn't always work, here (I started writing it and everything.. ) - but the bottom line is is; your ability to repair/boot a clincher and it's tube by separating the tyre into component parts makes them so much more useful for day-to-day training.

    Yeah - it's drills until the season starts.. then it's just race stuff - split into two groups.
    So: scratch, devil, etc

    If you were really really going 100% you wouldn't be able to do anything after #sprintertalk

    Riding a sportive on tubs is a bit of a facepalm anyway

    You can't roll a gabba up and put it in your back pocket to keep there for sudden showers, cafe stops and long descents..

    ^ It's not a very thorough study though. People always wave that one around - I'm never quite sure why.

    I figure I'll only wear the jacket in low light, so whatever difference I can make to visibility would be positive. From my limited experience driving a car in low light, cyclists wearing yellow stuff does make a difference.
