    I notice you've recieved no replies. I'm very fond of michelin tires and that tire is very nice for what it is. Ive used similar and they are very long wearing from my experience. Go for it

    Nailed it. To come will be a longer reach quill stem and some maes bend bars. These bars are terrible, but they were in my parts bin. Also going to swap to a sq taper and more appropriate cranks.
