Michelin A1 Airstop Tube Low QC at Michelon

I just received a replacement Michelin A1 Airstop Tube from WesternBikeWorks due to a faulty valve right out of the box! The tube was replaced with just a note to WesternBikeWorks, thank you! I ride 3-5x a week on flat to rolling terrain, usually pavement or concrete, so not a lot of stress on the tires. I rode the bike about 10 miles last night and parked the bike on an indoor lanai. About an hour later I heard something like a gun shot out back, not a gun shot though. The Michelin A1 Airstop Tube on the back wheel exploded! So keep the old tubes, you may need to replace the Michelin A1 Airstop Tube sooner than later. May be a QC problem at Michelon, don't know, this never happened to me before.

Reliable quality and competitively priced. They last and last but replacement is eventually necessary. It's not if but when.

I have logged hundreds of thousands of miles on the bike in my lifetime and for the last 2 decades the A-1 tubes have been my go to tubes. Western has consistently provided great prices on all of my tires and tubes.

Best for Silca pump
rating
by Anonymous

These tubes are top quality and the non-threaded valve is the perfect diameter for a Silca floor pump and offers a good surface for a hand pump to seal onto.

Haven't flatted since I got them two years ago and use them on five bikes plus the french valve is so easy.

I use these tubes on three road and two adventure bikes and have had no flats with literally thousands of miles of use. The french valve has thick rubber on the base of the stem inside the rim which is conical shaped and has eliminated the annoying tube cuts at the valve.

I only have used the tube for one ride. No problems. I bought some Kenda tubes and they didn't last long. I think the rubber was defective.

I had a lot of bad luck with the tubes I was getting from my local bike shop and decided I needed to find something more reliable. I did a bit of research and chose to try out this tube-it was well-regarded and came at a price that made it worth the trial. Good thing I ordered them, a couple days after they arrived, I had a flat and needed to put one on. Since then I haven't had any issues. They hold pressure pretty well and they're lightweight. I like the smooth valve, too. It seems to work better with various pumps. I plan to use this tube from now on.

These tubes seem to be the most reliable for the price. 52mm valve stem is excellent for deep rims, and the non treaded surface is easy on floor pump gasket.

First tube I tried on my rear tire on my Road Race Bike blew after cycling only 1 1/2 miles. I was angry seeing I was on my way to an appointment. The send tube I'm on seems to be holding air after 2 days of use.

I won't purchase this type of Michelin since the first one blew under 2 miles of cycling. I inspect the whole inside of the tire and notice no kind of puncture. Only switched to this tube because it was cheaper.

I'm going back to the Michelin UL 700 x 18-23 52MM PV. I'll spend the extra Dollars for a lasting inner tube.

I'm a Serious cyclist since March 2011 using my bicycle as my main transportation.

I have been very happy with the airstop by michelin. It rides exceptionally well, is almost as light as a lot of race only tubes, without being as prone to puncture as the lighter tubes!
