    Mounting Clinchers

    I just bought a 2018 Tarmac Expert with the Roval SLX wheelset.
    It comes with regular clincher-tube tires which is what I'll always run.
    Because the rims are tubeless compatible, I'm just wondering if anyone has had any issues mounting regular clinchers. I know the brand of tire can make a difference, and I'll be replacing the Specialized tires with Vittoria when the time comes. I'll be anxious to hear any info on this.

    'brifter' is a lame word.

    I've mounted tires on a bunch of Roval wheels. None of them have been difficult. The majority of the tires I've installed have been clinchers w/ tubes.

    Most rims now are tubeless compatible. Mounting tires will be tighter than with older rims, but there is a technique that once you learn it, eliminates curse words uttered.
