Perfect Commuter/Alleyway Tires
rating
by pdxdad

I've had these on for over a month now and I'm super happy with them. They're on my very heavy, bombproof commuter that I ride daily everywhere, including the alleyways in Portland so my young kids can experience "gravel." The install was super easy, they've been trouble free, and I would definitely buy them again. The price is right, they're durable, and they're easy to install. Outfit your commuter bike today!

After an exhaustive internet search for a quality tire at an affordable price, I discovered the Michelin Protec Cross on Westernbikeworks.com. These tires were a bit more aggressive than ones replaced, but a great choice for pavement, dirt, and gravel. Very pleased.

Economical option for winter commuting or training
rating
by drosser
Cycling Enthusiast
Portland, OR

I used to be a devotee of Schwalbes, but these are definitely a more economical alternative. As I no longer commute by bike (working from home) I'm using these tires as bulletproof winter training tires. They are not plush gravel grinding tires. They are not grippy racing tires. They're hard-wearing, thick treads you ride because fixing a flat in winter is Not Fun At All. Additionally, I think the tread is capable of some light gravel andor mud, but I haven't proven this theory.

I bought these for my Sirrus Elite. glad I did. The tires run smooth, have good grip and what's most important I have not had a flat on normal type paved surfaces. I did experience a drywall screw go right thru the tire and out the sidewall. The tire was toast. It was only my second ride on it. Unfortunately, even a car tire would not have stopped that screw. I ordered a new tire the same day and received the new tire 2 days later. Happy with the tire.

These are great tires, they give me much more confidence than my previous ones, that I'll make it the entire way through my ride without a flat. They are a great cross tire and I haven't had a flat in the last 500 miles.

I Always purchase tires in 3's since I go through 2 rears for every front. Moved out of SF bay area last year and found a need to buy a Merlin carbon cross bike to deal with the torturous country roads and miles of gravel in northern California. Beautiful, vehicle free rides all day but road conditions go from great to awe heck in a hurry. BIG difference from the 32's that came on the Merlin. Road comfort dramatically improved and now miles of gravel are always happily part of my rides.

Picked up 3 more for our Cannondale road tandem 1. Don't do gravel with the wife but these tires offer way more comfort for the me and my stoker. Stealth quiet, grippy and secure in the corners. 35's are the biggest to fit my bikes but I would have went bigger if I could. Big tires is where it's at anytime anywhere. No flat's yet.

These went on my FX-2, I went with the 35x700 size. Very impressed so far. They are QUIET, I was expecting some noise looking at the tread but have really enjoyed the lack of tread noise. I'm running 85 psi, the ride is nice, good roll. They are a bit heavy, but when riding this is unnoticeable. I was lucky and caught these on sale, but the regular price is still a great deal for what you are getting. The reflective stripe is a nice touch, overall I would buy another set without blinking.

Poor man's Schwalbe

Bicycle manufacturers almost always put JUNK tires on their bikes, with E-bikes being an exception. Whenever you get a new bike the first thing you should to is replace the crap OEM tires with something decent. Up until recently I have always replaced the original tires with Schwalbes but their prices have been getting a bit out of reach, so I searched for something high quality but less expensive. I found these and gave them a shot. So far, they're great! No flats, great ride. Recommended. Note: i also put in flat protectors. Flat tires are my #1 bike problem.

So far, I am satisfied with these tires I am using for my hybrid.

As it is still early in the season here in New England, I haven't had a chance to yet use off road.

My bike mechanic installed the tires and of note, he mentioned they were difficult to seat on the rims so I don't expect to change a flat by myself. Hopefully, I won't need to!

The Michelin Proteck Cross tire is a very durable and comfort riding tire for my Colnago Impact flat bar gravel bike. For riding road and trail surfaces I find this tire a highly reliable. It is a very grippy tire in tight turns and offering a fast rolling performance. This is a winner tire IMHO.

I am making a used Surly disc long haul trucker my own. These tires are the right size for the road or if I want to go off the beaten path. I have only been on paved roads so far and they seem to role well. Mine are the 35's on a 700 wheel. They are directional and must be mounted correctly. They went on the wheel about like most other tires I have mounted on these wheels, I needed tire tools to get them on.
