Hi Daresy, I'm just playing, as tyre opinions are just that...opinions
I always take people's comments and to some extent reviews with a pinch of salt
so to speak, as we are all SOooo different in how we ride, where/when we ride, where we've come from and what we ulitimately expect from the bike.
Anyone who says these particular tyres are brilliant and absolutely transform the bike always make me
as any new tyre will feel amazing compared to an old one.
Also be a little cautious about jumping on the 55 profile thing. It can go against you depending the tyre's profile itself and on your feel with it. I fitted a 55 RP4 (which has a higher standard profile, than OEM and for example an AngelGT
) and hated it
until I let out most of the air pressure to lower the profile again to something that felt more natural
I've never ridden the Road 5 version of the Michelin's so have no idea how they would feel against the Roadtech's
