Now "proper" hand made tubulars can be fixed but it involves a bit of mucking about and two specialist items: suitable needle & thread and latex solution.
I used to repair my tubulars after learning how in the bike shop I worked in as a teenager.
I tried to do the same to VeloFlex tubulars a few years ago but could not for the life of me get the backing tape off to get to the thread. So I began to lurk on the online stores and pounce when they were on special.
