Anyone ever try these? I have a pair and have mixed feelings about em. I run 140 psi and on a fairly smooth road,..I love them of course until the road gets bumpy. I don't go out too far because if I flat, I'm screwed unless I carry an extra tire. The ride is awesome especially hammering in the drops,..those tires also stick like glue.

I read here that Michelin is starting to race their own brand, but with theirs, you need a special type of rim. With these Tufos, you can run any standard rim.

Your thoughts?

I have not tried them but I am anxious to hear from others about them. The advertisement for them says that they can be ridden when flat. I have no idea what that would be like or what would be a feasible distance. Among the colour choices, the red/yellow is an interesting colour combination that might be striking.

I've yet to find a tire that cornered as confidently as my old Tufos. They aren't as smooth rolling as the larger 23mm tires I'm running now, but the Tufos made my bike feel like a cat on carpet in the twisties.
