Heard so much about these tyres..... what would you go for????

Not so much for racing but for ultimate low rolling resistance then grip then puncture resistance

Mine have arrived, but I won't put them on until the existing tyres are worn out.

Michelin have a tyre pressure guide, where you take into account the weight of the rider and bike. Does anyone know where I can get this?

Thanks for the link, I've previously been thru the site and not found it.

Based on the info, which is a little on the thin side, I'm 76.5Kg and my bike is 10Kg however I assume the weight was based on a 7Kg bike, therefor 76.5Kg + 3Kg = 79.5Kg (say 80Kg) which equates to 8bar which is 115psi, which is the max recommened for a pro2 race tyre anyway.

While I don't know how accurate my assumptions are, I'll go with 115psi on my existing tyres which has a max of 125psi.
