Cycling Virgin Bio – I’m 31 years old. I live in Scottsdale AZ. I have been riding bicycles for the last 3 years after 10 years of doing absolutely zero physical activity. I am a normal guy trying to find my way to good health and maybe some speed on the bike. Follow me as I share with you everything I have learned to this point. From VLOGS training and nutrition, to product reviews I will give you info from a NEW persons perspective into cycling.

Thanks for this. I’ve used Pro4s for about 2-3 years now (I like them actually) and was curious how these compared. After these were released the price on Pro4s in 25 plummeted down to $25 on Amazon so I still have a few pairs to run through.

Tubulars rule. Once you’re used to them, you will never want to use clinchers again. Good videos.

boostdoctor says:

Any updates on these tires?

Victor Guillen says:

On my used bike buy which is an old Felt F95, it had Michelin Pro3. I replaced those tires with continental gators. but Michelin left behind some tar like residue. elbow grease took them off.

Benjamin Shockley says:

I’ve had these on Pair of Easton EA90 SLs I bought as an inexpensive wheel set to improve an entry level Allez. They were a bitch to mount and it did take a long time for that white stuff to truly wear off, but they really are a great tire. Very sticky and snappy and I really do welcome the supple Michelin ride.

Charles Rush says:

Your review wasn’t accurate for this tire. I’ve used them all Summer 2016 and my review of them, at least the 25C, is they are better than any other brand I’ve tried in the last 8 years or so. I don’t even know how many different brands that is so I won’t name them, but these tires don’t puncture on chip seal and there is a lot of that shit around here. I’ve had no problem mounting them without levers and the coating is just that, a coating that wears off quickly. They do wear fast however and I’ve gone through five tires throughout the Summer, which I blame the chip seal for that. I think they roll pretty good, at least I had excellent control on fast descends. I would recommend this tire over Vittoria or Conti any day. The next tire I plan to give a try is the Specialized Turbo because I would like to try a 28C and the Michelins don’t come in 28C.

Cool to see you at the shop yesterday, keep up the videos man! So many channels out there are doing creative vlogs basically about “nothing” so it’s cool to see you putting these videos together in a similar style but with bike content, cycling maven does some cool vids as well. Get that YouTube money so you can get a drone!

Hayden Palmer says:

how are tires stiffer i cant tell when i ride. I can only what gets punctures easily.
