Have you rode on it yet? How smooth does that tire roll on pavement/hardpack? What size is it?

Will try to get some tomorrow outside, the tire is 26"x2.5".

Just got back from the first ride with it. My Impressions of it is:

The tire is heavy but accelerates really well, turns like it is on a rail. Can't lift the front easily, but it will get easier as I get used to the tire. The tire is good on a harder surface and is great on the loose stuff. Also the tire felt better despite the weight than the High Rollers. I will be definately sticking with michelin for a long time.

Where did you get the tire? (local or online?) and did you get a good deal? Looks like they have a 26x 2.3 also, about the size I'm looking for. Most' the Michelin tires are pretty pricey.

Got it local, they have it in 2.2 which measures out to be 2.3.
