Rated 4 out of 5 by Johna1971 Nice tyres for retro re-build
These tyres are just what was needed to finish Raleigh Team cadet re-build project to comply with original look, as for quality time will tell !

Rated 2 out of 5 by mickm OK tyre, but punctures are a problem.
OK tyre but would not recommend if you are traveilling a distance.
Tyre pattern disappears quickly if you cycle hard, but good for several 1000km.
BUT will puncture easily.
Had them in college many years ago, and put up with the punctures then.
When I got my old bike out again I bought the same tyres. (bought because of price and not knowing if I would stick with the cycling)
Eventually gave up on them after having 3 punctures in the same week. (city cycling - approx 200k per week)
Same journey with Bontrager tyres - 6000km with only 1 slow puncture.
Have Continental Gatorskin now. No problems so far.
Spend more on the tyre and save on puncture repair kits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by james555 awesome!
put simply this tyre is awesome.I've had it on the back of my training/school/everyday bike, which i thrash the life out of, for about 9 months now and it has barely worn. i cant think of a single time it has let me down, or even behaved unpredictably. It looks great too on old style bikes with the gum walls, and its really circular profile makes it look super speedy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Cheap and light
Ordered this for my wife's bike that i rebuilt, a bianchi colored mixte. Bought this as it was the right size (700 x 28) and it had gum colored sidewalls. Light and smooth with decent grip when dry. She only rides it on pavements and park connector at leisurely pace. However, i noticed a small opening on the threaded section of tire, this caused the inner tube to bulge out like a really huge pimple. Looks like i've got to change this tire after a mere 100KM. Not sure if its a defective product or she rolled over some glass/sharp object. Well... not too pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Better than expected
I've experimented with a lot of tyres on my commuter/tourer and never found anything that perfectly fitted the bill. My last tyres were Conti' Countryrides (700x35) which to be fair never pucntured but always felt dull. These Michelins (700x28) have added 3km/h to my average speed over my hilly 15 mile commute and the bike is much more comfortable, there's also loads of grip and feel in the wet; I can't forsee I'll ever look at anything else considering the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Would buy these tyres again.
Good looking tyre which with the look/condition of my tyres after many miles will last longer than me! One sore point is the big horrible name on the side-walls this can be easily removed by using white spirit, then its an even better looking tyre.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Superb!
Have this tyre in 700x20c on my everyday bike, I cross town twice a day on my bike(steel frame and fork with sturmey archer 2speed kick-shift rear hub).
These tyres have a classic old school look, superb speed and great cornering grip, wet and dry.
Only 500km, with no signs of wear and no punctures.
