Dear Michelin Tires, France re: 650B tires Made in France

Dear Michelin Tires, France re: 650B tires Made in France

A pair of Michelin “Made in France” 650B size bicycle touring tires just sole on eBay for over $225. That is over $100 for each tire.

Now, the most expensive tires at Rivendell http://www.rivbike.com/650B-Tires-s/111.htm  or at Harris Cyclery http://sheldonbrown.com/harris/tires/584.html are about $65

So these lovely “Made in France” Michelin 650B tires are more then the sought after Hetre Grand Bois, or the Pacenti Pari-Moto’s.  So my suggestion to Michelin is, obviously,” Start Making These Again!”

How is it that bicycle tires are more expensive than automobile tires?!
