I was recently involved in a crash, which has cracked my front clincher wheel. I'd like to give tubulars a go and would like a wide rim so that I can fit some 700c x 25-28 mm tyres without the tyre becoming bulbous and greatly increasing drag, while enjoying the added comfort of a wider tyre. Are there any options for less than £100? Most of the options seem to be full carbon constructions, which I cannot afford and do not brake well in the wet anyway.
The main reason people tend to use tubular tyres is that they are generally lighter than clincher counterparts. If you do wish to use a more budget-friendly alloy wheel, then going tubular isn't going to gain you too much weight savings. This is the reason manufacturers don't produce tubular alloy wheels. But if you want to save weight on wheels, try tubeless.
