Speediums are hard to install
My Vittoria Rubino Tech on rear wheel gave me around 1500 miles. Two tiny holes mysteriously appeared on the surface following the first flat in 1400 miles. A couple of times going through replacing tubes, I decided it was time to replace the tire.
Just received Michelin Speediums this afternoon. Oh my God, was it difficult putting them on. I had to ask my dad to help me with the job. It took us good 10-15 minutes per wheel to put the tire on. I was sweating like a hog, had to take my shirt off, lol. My Rubino Techs were much easier to install. My front rim is Mavic Ksyrium Equipe and rear rim is Mavic Open Pro. Here is a couple of pics:
