I will like to hav my first far oversea IM70.3 taiwan.. family can go holiday after the event... in additional wetsuit is optional...

i think i will stick to tropical water IM swim since i will not likely to buy wetsuit... Most of the IM event at australia need to wear wetsuit...

Not sure where got chance to train to swim in wetsuit in Sg..... but if i wetsuit trained.,,, i will really like to go IM in japan..

Looking for IM70.3 event around SEA due to tropical waters con'd.... anyway i don't really like to travel australia... went numerous time for buz trip...

Aiyorr...i'm just damn suay with riding. And i'm also too lazy to learn how to replace a burst tube :blush: . Just out of curiosity, do most of you guys carry an extra tube and hand pump all the time during races or you don't? Because so far, i've not seen anyone repairing their flat tires at races. I saw a female participant with a flat back tire during the last MetaSprint Tri, and she walked with her bike all the way back to T2. I heard some will still continue riding on with the flat tire!!

actually.. some just bring along a whole wheel.. no need worry about what inner tube extra and hand pump.. because, yours bro jerrylam..clincher type.. which consists of an inner tube and a tire..

and.. some don't even worry about tube.. because..their wheels are not..but Tubular..

so what the Tubular vs Clincher Tyres..in terms of puncture resistance, rolling resistance, and ease of installation

puncture resistance

Because tubular tires often have higher tire pressure than clincher tires, they can be less prone to pinch flats and punctures. However, flat protection technology within a brand of tires usually transcends the style of tire and thus clincher flat protection is better than ever. Continental offers the same effective and lightweight Vectran flat protection layer in their GP4000 clinchers and the GP4000SR tubular. Winner: slightly toward tubular...uncle recommends GP4000 for clinchers..

rolling resistance

Rubber compound, how forgiving the tire casing is, how rough the road, tire pressure, rider weight, tubular glue or tape being used, and the material of the tube are just some of the variables that affect a tire’s rolling resistance. No Winner. A Tie

ease of installation

It is usually assumed that clinchers are easier to install than tubulars, but one type of tire doesn’t carry a big advantage over the other in this regard. In a race situation, a tubular can be easier to change than some of the tightest fitting clincher tires, and it can be easy to break tire levers and puncture tubes when changing. It’s a tie!

in summary:

- the lightest practical tubulars will always be lighter than the lightest clincher
- if you flat, you can ride on it for a little longer
- if glued properly and the tire will stay on the rim even if it flats
- ride quality
- costs more (rims, tubulars)
- more difficult to maintain/repatch as an individual without team support on the road
- you could get tire/rim seperation, esp when rims are hot from braking

- cheaper
- more common
- wheels are more common
- easier to patch on the road, no need for gluing, stretching tire, etc

- if you flat, you can't really ride on it
- some say a lower quality ride
- will always be heavier (tube, tire, clincher interface)

The ride quality and weight differences are getting smaller, but will always continue to be there. Esp with carbon wheels - carbon clinchers are more difficult to make... and will be heavier than their carbon tubular rim counterparts... so understand why.. most pros.. use..carbon tubular rim.. like that..


ok.. bro jerrylam.. weather recently is wet.. so pressure cold and hot.. must know how to balance..PSI..

and.. inner-tube if not fitted properly into rim.. as long as when pumped..some of the inner tube expose slightly outwards.. so ready to be "punctured"..when ride into bumpy situation..

and.. depress..PSI of tire..slightly..day before.. and "pump up"..on race day.. a bit..until ready.. this is done in transition.. for in some races.. bike check-in the day before (usually evening) with all their gear (swim,, bike and run) for race.. and on actual-day of race.. only BIKE PUMP is allowed..so can understand why..

and also.. do you know that weight of rider vs psi is related..


bro jerrylam.. must have gained weight in recent weeks.. got check.. tummy and backside.. need to do "liposuction"..urgently.. before race day..

after LAST triathlon race of 2013.. time to Tubular wheels upgrade loh.. :turned:

"actually.. some just bring along a whole wheel.. no need worry about what inner tube extra and hand pump.".....I assume these guys that bring along the whole wheel are mostly using tubular wheels. So if they suffer a flat tire, they can still ride on a while more towards the transition area to replace the wheel. Hmmmm......sounds like a good solution to my problem.

Yeah, i'm using the Continental GP4000 tires now which is supposed to offer one of the best puncture protection for clincher tires. And i check my tire pressure everytime before i ride. I guess its just the way i'm riding plus the route which i usually train. As compared to Changi Coast Road or even Mandai Road, there are many small sharp stones and pebbles littering the side of the road all along Seletar North Link and Seletar West Link because of the cement factories there. Both times my back wheel punctured along this stretch. I think i'll have to lean more towards the front rather than resting fully on the seat when i'm trying to evade these patches of small stones.

Currently, a tube costs less than $10, and the GP4000 is about $60 each. So if i'm switching over to tubular wheels, do i need to change the rim as well? And how much does a tubular wheel cost averagely?

$2.5k - $5k???????? :startle: Ok, i'll start learning how to fix my clincher tires for 2014!! hahaha

didn't uncle says.. 2014.. then think about it..

and since you die die want to know the cost.. carbon tubular wheelset..depends on front or rear..


one cheep cheep.. $2500-$5000...before discount..

soory.. uncle got "caught" with a young and preety sgRunner.. advising her.. not to have personal FB or blog.. as.. sharing..and uncle did an uncompromise act.. extracted PIC of real person.. and.. flash (of course, removed, after being told not to)..and uncle.."removed".. and reminded her.. not to reveal private info.. for private matters.. "locked and secured" privately..

same also.. bro jerrylam.. when uncle knew you.. uncle also say.. "seen" you @FB right.. but, uncle got poor memories.. so.. ignore pics of "private" matters.. for..we..respect..each other.. via.. "avatars".. we chat.. we share..yes, sometimes.. we "cry" in defeat.. unjustice.. sometimes.. have similarity in situation..in handling familiy delicate matters with career and sports..like how TRIathletes.. cope with growing Family..and yet..wanting to achieve that..coverted...IM..and after that.. more IMs.. and everyone..including..uncle.. also faces such issues.. uncle's one from auntie is always, "Sure or not, you can perform sXX.. just before 5-min..zzzZZZZ..ya..excuses..swimming..biking..running.. always not enough..".. and before long..uncle..zzzzZZZZZ.. thinking about training..

yes.. as uncle has said in Tri-factor series forum, after scms 2013.. uncle shall "retire" from sgRunners.. because.. has taken greater responsibility for the future sports matter..in the ever growing popularity..like the sports of multi-event sports.. be it aquathlon..duathlon..or..triathlon.. everyone has "exposed" and now the awarenss has lifted from "grassroot".. to.."competitive"..and even.. athletics.. besides..running of distance races including marathon running...

yes.. uncle has received coaching training certification in Triathlon.. and yes, also coaching training certification in Athletics.. of course, also serving faithfully also as national Officials (may also international soon after 2014) for both sports bodies.. Triathlon and Athletics..yap..SEA Games 2015 (in training)..of course..if can go Rio 2016...why not..shall be great.. and.. so.. uncle in remaining days till 2013.. shall contribute.. anything.. of interest in Triathlon here.. so that in 2014.. no more uncle.. everyone can pick up useful tips here.. and.. Tri-Factor series.. got some.. and of course.. MegaTri 2013.. with bro jerrylam.. some forummers thot.. uncle and bro jerrylam.. kind of "kinky" relationship..over there.. :turned:

this race shall be the next one.. after Tri-factor Triathlon.. and..yes.. like bro jerrylam.. last Triathlon race for 2013.. and yes, for uncle.. last Triathlon forum..posting and sharing for ever...farewell and exit..silently..like a ghost.. <disappear>

yap.. time clicking..fast..so.. like uncle.. very sentimentally.. thank you for sharing.. is there any more thing you want to know about the sports..Triathlon? 5np35h.jpg please keep this.."retirement"..<secret> ok?
