Comments about Schwalbe Marathon Tire:
I have many bikes in my quiver, and ride many thousands of miles each year.
One bike is my heavy touring rig ('full on' touring that I also commute to work with) which I had been using GatorSkins with good success (puncture and durability) but they are getting very pricey... very pricey. So I investigated some alternatives.
Tried the Serfas tires because the price was seemingly too good to be true, and the product descriptions was 'spot on' for heavy touring. What a mistake !!!!! I never got so many flats on any make of tire in my life. I would have days I would get 3 flats in one day. Pure garbage. Threw themn in the trash in frustration.. even my unused ones. It was liek every commute to work was a flat tire day.
Tried the Schwalbe Marathons and cannot be more pleased. I have since used these many thousands (yes thousands) of miles now and I have never (unheard of) gotten a flat. Many of my tours also take me out to 'no-mans land' off the beaten path... rocky roads, etc. Still no flats. These tires exceed all expectations and exceed GatorSkins. I have also recenly put a set on my tandem (removing the GatorSkins). They are also durable. I get about 4000+ miles out of a set. The fronts can go longer, but the rears the tread has worn down too far at that point due to the weight the rear of the tour bike takes.
The only negatives I might point out are;
These are a bear (I mean a real bear) to put on when 1st new. The rim bead is extreemly tight around the rim (but this could be a fnction of my rims).
Weight; These are no lightweight tires. But that is to be expected with this type of durability and load carrying capability.
Highly recommend these tires.
Hope this helps
