I bought a tubular tire (Gommitalia Logo tire-clincher), do i still need to use a rubberized glue to fit it to the rim? or, does a clincher needs an inner tube? I don't know the difference between a clincher and a sew-up tubular tire. Please help.

If you bought a Tubular tire, then you will need this glue to glue it to your rim. If your tire is a clincher and hooks in using a bead, then you do not need it. Clincher tires need a tube, in tubulars, they are already inside the casing or non existent.
