My road bike came with tubs back in '95. They were really nice - light and fast - but I bent the back wheel in crash and got it rebuilt with a clincher. The front I kept as a tub for years, in London too. Recommend you stick 'em on with tape not glue - it's fiddly but relatively quick and (I imagine) not as fiddly as glue. I never had any problems with the tyre coming unstuck.
tufos - tried one once but just didn't like it for some reason. maybe it was the noise they made.
eventually the hub failed (flange split - radial spoking :) and i switched to a clincher after that.
