    Michelin TransWorld City. Any thoughts?

    I was thinking of getting these tires (28c x 700) for my singlespeed commuter. I like the idea of the reflective strip on the sidewall. Any feedback on these tires would be welcome. Thanks

    If you're just buying them for the strip, you can do better. Reflective tape (available at your hardware store) on the rim between the spokes works well, or you can also loop it between spokes for that cool aero look (which will also make it more visible from the side).

    I can't comment on the Transworlds but I have the Schwalbe Marathons (also feature a reflective strip) on my commuter and they've been great, no flats yet.
