Opinons on which front wheel feels/ looks coolest to you. Just wondering if any hype beasts are out their like me. Im trolling guys. But honestly, I am wondering if he'd 3 and zipp 3000 tubular are safe on the road/street. I might pick up a hed3 tubular soon. Any comments and info appreciated. Thanks pedalroomhomies.

I think it's fine for road use if only the front is tubular. Forget about riding a rear tubular wheel in the streets..I don't think that will work too well unless you never skid. If you're going with a HED3 in the front, why don't you just get a clincher?

ive run tubs on the back and they held up pretty good on skids.
try to run tubs are a bit more expensive like the the conti gatorskins that have a removable valve core so you can load it up with stans no tubes sealant.

clinchers however are the best option for street riding :P its all fun and games ...till you puncture a tub. happened to me ... thought id be cool and ride my tubs ....,punctured with only 25km's on the new tires. never again hahaha money down the drain
