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

pro race 2 question

i picked up a set of light blue special edition's from a swap meet, and while i was recently checking out michelin's web page saw the "grip" version looked identical. i know they are different tires, but now i am wondering which ones i got.

do the grip version say it on the tire or is there any way to tell the difference between them and the special editions?

thanks

They say GRIP on them and have a non-smooth tread pattern.

It sounds like the ones you got are the ones which are prone to problems. If you send them to me I won't charge you for proper disposal.
