Just fell in Love with Power Ones

So yesterday was my first day out on my new tires the Michelin Power One B, and I must say im completely in love with it before I had Sportmax gp and went through 2 sets and i hated them here in chicago i couldnt lean like i wanted to and kept getting tire spin.. So i put my Michelin on and OMG in 60 degree weather im able to get my knee down. I think I found a new home with these tires...

wait until they warm up... on 90* days with sunny hot roads they actually get tacky.. not quite racetrack sticky, but you can feel the tackiness with your fingers when you stop.

great tires.

I got the Power One B compound on my old F2 track bike. Just got back from 2 day event at Summit Point, all I can say is WOW, great tire. It was maybe 60 degrees today and they stick plain and simple they stick. I dont think they are gonna last very long though. But thats ok. I'll just buy more.

I have the pures on both my bikes right now, but I want to try the power ones next. I wonder what kind of mileage you get out of them. 5k?

I would never get 5k out of them.... 5k is what I get out of pures.
my only set of Power Ones got me about 3k, but I didnt actually write down the miles.
it was short, but very good... I think the pures are a better choice for me though, but only because of the miles ridden VS tire replacement cost.
