I hope the link works. I was wondering how the Schwalbe tires were made, I stumble upon this on You Tube.

Didn't realize how labour-intensive tire manufacturing was. Thanks for the vid.
Wow, quite manual labor intensive (even the tubes)
I wonder if this manufacturing process is typical of all manufacturers? I have some Panaracers made in Japan and would assume Japanese manufacturing would be more automated.

Fascinating. Thanks for posting this.
Kinda puts the price of a premium tire in perspective, doesn't it? Wonder how we can buy them so cheap.

I'm even more impressed with my new Schwalbe Marathon's. That's a well done video.

Excellent video. Thanks for posting. I almost want to throw out all my other brands now.

Why is it that the products need to go to Germany for distribution? Wouldn't it be cheaper to ship to distributors straight out of the factory in Indonesia?
