    You can be certain you won't have the flat protection of a Marathon Plus...they are two completely different tires...if you want flat protection get the Marathon Plus...if you want a reasonably low rolling resistance tire the Big Apple is a good choice. If you want something in between the two get a standard Marathon.

    Having just patched a leak in my Big Apple I concur with vik. But it certainly is one of the smoothest rides I've ever had. They came with my Dahon Jack.

    How about the Marathon Extreme?
    If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much room!
