Ive converted an older mountain bike to a bike trail family bike that I pull a trailer with. These tires intrigued me so i thought I'd give them a try. Only have about 100 milea on them but love the ride quality and speed vs a mountain bike or commuter tire! Would buy again as they seem to wear and feel as good as the Michelins i run on my road bike.
I put these tires on an older Specialized Stump Jumper that I use for commuting. They run well and are very quiet but most importantly, they have improved my commute time significantly. The high pressure (87 psi) and low rolling resistance make them perfect for city commuting.
I use these on a training bike of mine. I have them on my TREK 6500. Old as mud but love the ride. Thinking of putting them on my Santa Cruz
I like a smooth tire, less rolling resistance, I like 6 bars, less effort required to get up an hill. fantastic, there are a lot of hills in Seattle
These tires are used for strictley city riding and they are very comfortable, relaible and low maintenance. I have bought several pairs for my bikes. Highly recommend and a tremendous value. The best tire ever was the Continental Touring model made in Germany with the maroon colored sidewalls. I would kill for those!
I have been putting between eight and fifteen miles daily on my mountain bike and decided to try a road type tire when the time came. I found these on sale and being cheap, I decided to try them. I couldn't be happier with my choice. The resistance is way down and the speed way up from the traditional tires I had been using. They also seem to wear very well. I am approaching three hundred miles on them and the casting seam in the center of the tire is still visible. I ride on multi use pathways and roads and as yet have had no flats. I will buy them again when they finally wear out.
Put these on a MTB-frame urban bike i put together. Very low rolling resistance, makes hills seem easier. Gotta be real careful on the pressure though, I was running 45psi (seems reasonable???) but was getting tons of pinch flats on moderate speed curb hops. Not acceptable in an urban bike. Running higher now which translates to a rougher ride on broken seattle pavement but so far no flats.
I bought these and installed them on my Trek mountain bike, it turned it into a rocket! Very smooth riding setup that is proving to be very durable.
Ride remains like you're on a mountain bike, comfortable that is. But these tires made my Trek 8000 mountain bike accelerate almost as fast as my Specialized Roubai and can maintain 20 mph easily (replaced 9 speed cassette to 11-26). Changing front ring gears to say 30-38-48 would make this bike perform as well as road bikes. I ride 20-30 miles 5X a week and these tires are just a revaluation. I would like to try the 1.1 inch width Wild Run'R Tire. Probably even a faster tire but a bit more expensive. These are the greatest all around.
These tires are fast fast fast and it should also be noted that they are tubeless ready t
his can be found on the Michigan website. I use stans no tubes and the tires were the easiest tubeless ready tires I have used
Wanted to use an older mountain bike as a winter trainer on the road. Chose these tires and couldn't be happier. Running at 80 psi the rolling resistance is low and the ride is very smooth and quiet. Highly recommend for your 26 inch wheels.
These tires have totally met all my expectations. They have been very puncture resistant. At first I thought they were really too thin and lite. They are really fast, I mean fast. These tires were easy to install. Both tires I purchased were made true and straight, no wobble. I have 200 miles on them so far. I have accidentally ran over shards of glass and sharp rock and yet to have any problems. My overall speeds went up enough that I purchased a new cassette with lower gears and now travel 5mph faster at cruising speed than original mountain bike tires. Cannot beat the sale price. Very Happy so far, many more miles will tell more me about reliability.
These tires are amazing when you ride your mountain bike on paved roads. I don't bother with my road bike anymore because the mountain bike with the Michelin Wild Run'R tires is more comfortable to ride and the rolling resistance on pave roads seems about the same. I was worried on dirt trails that the no-tread tires may slip on gravel, but they don't. I am a believer.
Great tire for the street. My mountain bike was faster, easy to steer, and smoother. Stop wasting away your good mountain bike tires when you can have it all for very little money.
