    Great tubes for the money. Michelin's quality is better than most of the cheaper tubes. It's a bit harder to press pump head down onto threadless valve stem, but you get used to it.

          I received four tubes, three out of the four tubes had tiny pin holes in them. The air leaks were very small, I failed to notice the leak at first.

              The smooth valve stem makes these MUCH easier to use with pumps with a Silca-type chuck, which doesn't have a lock/unlock feature.

                Comments about Michelin A1 Airstop Presta Road Tube:

                I like the 52mm smooth valve because it protrudes from my alloy rims enough to make attaching my air pump head easy, and it causes less wear on the pump head rubber gasket than threaded valve stems do. I have tried 48mm and 60mm stems; the 52mm is just right for me. The Airstop tubes are very durable. In Florida I ride on clean roads and have very few flats. When I visit family in upstate NY I ride on roads with glass, stone shards, and wire from radial tire blowouts. In NY, using tire liners, I have had no flats with the Airstops. Without the tire liners I believe no tube would survive.

                Popped one after a 20 mile ride. Not sure if it was just chance but I wasn't too happy about that.

                    I've been using these tubes for about a year now and like them very well. They seem to hold air better than other tubes I've used, so I find myself not having to air them up as often. Can't ask for much more out of a tube!

                      I bought two new tires and two of these tubes. One tube leaked right away. On both sides of the stem, the tube ballooned into two big bulges with no air pressure. There was a pinhole in one bulge. I patched it, but it only lasted one day. I gave up and replaced it. The other one is working.

                        Works as well or better than any other tube I've used, plus I like the long, smooth stem. Like other tubes, I must add more air after a week, but that's to be expected. I run these at 110 PSI and put my 300 lb body on top so that's no light load, but these work fine.

                              I like to wait until Nashbar has a sale, and then buy ten of these at a time, but even at the regular price, they are a good value.

                              I run these with 700x25c width tires. I've been riding Vittoria Open Corsas, but I am switching to Continental 4000s, due to a lot of rear wheel punctures this season, but I blame that on the tires, not the tubes. I've never had a failure that appeared to be a defect in the tube itself.

                              These tubes are available with 40mm, 52mm, or 60mm valve stems. Nashbar has been shipping the 52mm size as their standard, so be aware that you can't use valve extenders with these due to the non-removable valve cores and lack of threads.
