Michelin "Speedium" Tires

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Anyone have them? Likes? Dislikes? Performance has them on closeout for $11.99 each.

I just bought them too, it was unbelievably hard to get the tires onto a Mavic Ksyrium rim and also Open Pro rim. I have posted some pics in a separate thread in bicycle mechanics subforum (Search by my name).

However the next time I took them apart (yes I had flats, but as it turned out, had nothing to do with the tire), it was easy to get them off and on.

Before this I had Vittoria Rubino Tech tires on both wheels and I did not have a single flat in 1500 miles until the rear tire wore out. If I buy tires again in near future, they won't be Michelin speediums. They'd either by my good old Rubino techs or Michelin Pro Race 2's.

Hope that helps.

I was about to buy them on closeout as well, but I noticed that they are actually less expensive on probikekit.com (free shipping to US). They also had more color choices.
