no metzlers!!! that's what lost traction and threw me in Little River. I found several other instances with metzler tires. I have Michelins on the superglide.

I tried Metzlers, they weren't bad tires but I never felt confident on them. Great wear, though.

I'm back to Bridgestones; they're a few dollars more, but they are the best bike tires I've ever used (and I've used a lot of them).

Which Bridgestone tire do you like?

The Exedra?


May try them, I also had thought about trying Michelins, do you have an opinion on them?

Didn't know they were Exedras, but those are what I am using. G702 on the rear and G703 on the front. They have about 11k on them now, but I should get another 4-5k out of them before June.

I've never owned a Michelin bike tire; sorry.

I have no complaints against my michelins.
