Since I assume this is for you TT/Tri bike, you want to put a set of fast
tires on your race wheels, so there is no need to check out the tufos (they test as very slow tires). There are a number of considerations such as how well the width matches the width of your rim, rolling resistance, etc. For rolling resistance, it can be pretty hard to beat the Vittoria Evo Corsa CXs although with their increase in TPI a couple of years ago they actually seemed to have increased in rolling resistance. Unfortunately it seems as if Vittoria is still an unknown on the vegan tire list (and these are expensive tires) - but there are a number of other good tires out there (I will need to remind myself and get back to you or give you a link). People tend to dismiss rolling resistance, but when you look at the watts that are in it, it can be significant for a bad tire.
Glues is a pretty damn good question and I suspect it may be impossible to find a vegan one, but I honestly have no idea. I have been blissfully ignorant and ignored it in the past.

I need to buy myself a pair of tubular for a new pair of race wheels, and this helps a lot.
I need info on a starting pair of tubulars... like Tufo. I'm concerned about the glues.
