OK, I have about worn out the stock Bontrager tires on my Tiburon. :(
Yesterday I rotated the front with the back, but I will soon be in the market for some good 700/35 road tires. I was looking at the Michelin Transworld City tires, and was wondering if anyone had them, or anything similar to them. I am looking for a strictly road type tire, with good rolling efficiency, and some durability. I just started to look, and figured this is the best place for advice.

I put one of these on the front and like it better than MIchelin dynamics.
It has reflective sidewalls and kevlar belt. No flats since changing to the schwalbe's.
Delivery is in a couple of days, either from schwable or from oregon LBS with slightly cheaper prices. www.universalcycles.com
I put 32c panaracer paselas on mine ... they rock at about 90 psi but are still great on the crushed stone path once in a while. I went with the wire bead. Nashbar has them for under $15@ ... that helped too!
Congrats on wearing out your first set!

I've never met a Michelin I didn't like. I've also had good luck with Specialized turbos.

I've got a Continental Top Touring 2000 37x700 on the rear of my recumbent. At 80psi, it rolls and rides well. With a 70% rear weight bias, you just know I'm hard on that tire. In 3 years, it has rolled over it's share of junk. Last year I got my only flat to date. Whatever the debris was would have flatted most any road tire judging from the gash in the tread. I booted it with a tube patch and am still using it.
