    Tire and lockring question

    My lbs only stocks soma lock rings. How are these?

    My lbs recommended some michelin tires or said for less I can get some irc, thoughts? Don't know the exact models. He said they were thinner 700c tires.

    Vague questions I know but thanks for the help.

    If they are michelin omniums I have one on my road bike right now, it seems decent I guess, though for a similar price continental makes an ultra sport tire that I've got on a front wheel and seems to be rocking. Your LBS seems to not be rocking, you should look into a new one.

    More than $10 is too much for a lockring. Your tire question is too vague as michelin covers the spectrum from crap to race tires.
    If you want to know about Tarck Bikes, PM me.

    I don't know that more than 10 bucks is too much for a lockring; I paid 15 or 12 for my DA
    I am looking for a 52cm-ish lugged mixte or ladies frame. Pm if you got one.

    Not helpful at all. Michelin makes a whackload of tires. With obvious differences in quality and price.

    soma lockrings have a little "extended thread tab", which may or may not fit all the way on your hub.

    I got a milwaukee lockring (ben's cycle) for $8 plus shipping, for my no name track hubs, and the milwaukee ring fits better than the original (which was made from old kleenex or something)

    for a fixed gear tire choice, you just don't want anything super light, get tires with a nice thick tread portion, and as everybody said above, michelin makes so many tires, you'll just have to shop around.
