I'm fixing up my old road bike as a weekend bike that I'll keep at my girlfriends, and I'm interested if anybody has any first-hand experience with Michelin City Road tires (700c-32 if it makes a difference)
The usage will vary from 20-30 mile weekend rides with my girlfriend to the occasional run to the nearby grocery store, etc.
I'll be riding exclusively on dry pavement, generally fair condition but some potholes.
The bike will handle 32mm but that is about as wide as I can go.
I'm a clyde-like ~215. Bike + rider = ~240 lb.
I'm looking for something between a training tire and a bulletproof commuter tire, something that is fairly puncture-resistant but still provides some grip and "feel" of a road bike. Most of the hazards will be glass and potholes, not too many thorns.
The Michelin City Road tires look like they would be suitable, and have generally good reviews. At $25ish they are affordable, but I'm willing to pay more for a better tire if necessary.
The Conti Top Contact II looks interesting but is probably too much on the bulletproof side. Also, I can't find those in 700x32.
Thanks in advance!
