  • My Vittoria tubs have started to grow hairy around the rims. They have been used indoors in a velodrome only, and are around 8 years old - having had relatively modest use over that period. Is something bad happening? Should I replace them? Thanks.

    That's a pretty long time.

    I'd be checking the glue was still doing it's job, deflate them and try and roll them off the rim.

    There looks to be a bit of a gap between the rim and the base tape so they might have dried out a bit.
