Vittoria Mastik'One Professional Tubular Glue $24.95
Don't repeat Joseba Beloki's 2003 crash.
More races are won on tubulars than clinchers. More races are won on Vittoria tubulars than any other brand. So more races are won on tires affixed with Mastik One than any other glue (or tape) out there. It's what the pros use when it matters, i.e. as they skid at suicidal speeds through Alpine hairpins in the torrid French heat in July. One tube is 30g. Enough to glue one or two tires, depending on your gluing habits.
- 250-gram tin contains enough glue for 12 tubular tires

Works great - secure
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The glue works great. Tires are not going anywhere, but should still be removable with some effort come replacement time. I use 1 dry coat on the tire and rim, then a wet coat on the rim. Easy and only takes 2 days from start to finish.
Unlike some cements, this can doesn't come with a brush under the lid, so I find myself using (and discarding) an acid brush for each 24hour application. I just get them at a local hardware store for 59c each, but it's annoying and an extra expense/hassle to consider.
Best for cross
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Use what the Pro's use. The Vittoria Mastic is the only glue to use for cross. It's fairly easy to use and is very hard to roll a tire if glued correctly. Two applications on the rim then two on the tire.
It's glue. Not much else to say
The tube, 30g selection is 12 tubes of 30g.
Mastik works wonderfully. Listen to your old tubular riding buddies and follow their steps closely.
