Topic - Plantet X Carbon bike - are tubs really suitable for amateurs?

FrankBooth - on 26 Jun 2013
I spotted this road bike on the Planet X site - amazing value (carbon bike with carbon rim wheels for 1300) http://bit.ly/10kIN5x

I was quite tempted until I realised the tyres are tubs rather than standard clinchers. I'd be interested to hear the opinion of more experienced riders as to the practicalities of carrying around spare tyres and glue and making road-side repairs.

I'd quite like to get a new bike for around this price point, but I also recognise that as a bimbling Sunday punter, the benefits don't necessarily outweigh the extra faff.
