Michelin Dynamic Sport Road Tire: "Great for all bikes..... except fixed gear."


     I have had these tires for less than a month on a fixed gear setup. I would not recommend them for that particular purpose. They should hold up significantly more for other applications. I picked these tires up because they were inexpensive and I believe that if I had spent a bit more on my tires that I would have gotten more out of my dollar.

I'm always looking for good value on my bike parts since I'm still a broke cyclist. These do not fit the bill. There are better options for this price range. I tore these tires up in a heartbeat running a brakeless setup for a month. Thank goodness I ran the flat attack tubes, they were a life saver on the multiple punctures I received this month.

Pros : Aesthetically Pleasing, Easy To Mount, Inexpensive, Lightweight
Cons : Prone To Puncture,Wears Out Quickly
Best Uses : Commuting/City, Road Biking

Oh btw! I was using the 700x28c tire set.
