I have some knobby cross-specific tubular tires (Challenge Limus 33) mounted on a bike and I want to change them in exchange for slick tires for a period of riding primarily on the pavement. While they are excellent tires, and have a lot of life left, the road noise is undesirable.

Can these tires be reused after they have been separated from the rim tape and/or glue?

  • Watch for a used tubular wheelset. You get CX racers that trade up and sell nice used stuff cheap.

Yes, you can reuse them.

Just be careful removing the old ones, clean them up and then swap on the new ones.
