Thought I'd toss it out there. Michelin Dynamic Classics on sale (700c 23/25/28 only) for $9.49 at BikeTiresDirect today

Rough idea of what they look like on C&V:

Nice, I'm actually picking up a bike tomorrow that needs tires so this is convenient.

I opted to re-up on principle alone. It's tough to turn down a name-brand $10 tire. Not a fan of anything less than 30s, but I think I can live with a 28 in this case... (ps - 4 tires, 4 A2 tubes, $55 shipped, can't touch that price at my LBS)

Cool ~ For several years, I've been buying these when I'm in Spain on business. (At a sports super-store known as Decathlon, and for about the same price actually) Nice to know they are now available in the USA.

I haven't had any problems so far, and I'm a Clydesdale. The type of riding I'm doing, 15mph sunny day club rides, I can't comment on performance, flat resistance, or longevity. I run them at 100 ~ 105 psi

Some images of these tires on a few of my C&V riders

1972 Paramount P15-9 with 700c clincher wheel conversion (was 27" clincher)


1973 Paramount P10-9 with 700c clincher wheel conversion (was 27" clincher)


1972 Mercian Vincitore with 700c clincher rim conversion (was tubular)

IIRC, it has fairly thick sidewalls, but is well made.

Sale is ongoing until Sunday at 11:59pm EST I believe... So plenty of time to cash in. I got the price down as low as I did because a 10% coupon came when I purchased some red-walled Kendas for the '84 Trek 660 I picked up last weekend. Vendor seems about on par with my shopping experiences thru Niagara thus far.

Request alternate shipping! They shipped my Schwalbe HS159's via First Class mail, and they took 17 days to arrive. They were delivered at night, in the rain, by a non uniformed person driving a rented box truck!!??,,,,BD


I've noticed they do not have First Class as an option anymore. I guess they use that only on their free shipping sales. Carry on...

Last Christmas I picked up two sets of Michelin Dynamic's from Nashbar on clearance for around $5 a tire, I think I got 28's. I used one set on my Jetter that I sold, I just couldn't pass them up at that price plus free shipping as I got other stuff.

These Michelins run on the wide side of their stated size, fwiw.

Also check out the Michelin Dynamic Sport tires for $9.99, if you like multiple color choices on your sidewalls, [strike]and/or are looking the 32mm sizing as well.[/strike] EDIT : 32mm size is mentioned in the copy but is not one of the choices in the popdown menu where you select size/color.

These look like the perfect tire if one is selling a bike, too. Nicely made, name brand. Can't beat that price with a stick

chainreactioncycles are doing a similar deal, same tyre, if you're in the UK or Ireland. €10.49 for 25mm or 28mm ; €9.49 for 23mm. I have them on my Bianchi Sprint 76, and so far I love them.

I ordered a pair yesterday for my '86 Schwinn Tempo. I ride the bike no more than 12 miles at a time, so hopefully these will suffice.

I got three of these, and am already down to two. Front one blew out through the sidewall on Monday morning-- sidewall tore away from the bead.

logo has become way too obnoxious on this line of tire, but what the hell, nice deal.
tanwalls are becoming hard to find.

FYI, there's another sale at BTD on these, $9.49/ea for 700x23 specifically.

https://www.biketiresdirect.com/prod...c-classic-tire

Deal should be good for at least another few hours.

Thanks for the heads up. I missed this deal last time around. Took a flyer and decided to try a pair of 23s. I'll see how they hold up gravel grinding with the Medici. Under $30 for two tires plus shipping. Not too shabby.

They're not the lightest, as @dddd said they run large because of thicker tread, which is never a bad thing if you want durability, but if you're a weight weenie, you may not want them. They're not dissimilar from the Vittoria Randonneur II in that regard, those runs about 2-3mm tall/wider than advertised as well, but come with the added weight. When either these specific tires or those go on sale, I'm usually buying a pair or two if I'm out.

Anyone buying 7000x23 will probably find these run more like a 700x25. like wise the 25 run more like a small 28.
