My Schwalbe Kojak got damaged along the side after slipping partially into a road side grill.
It's not serviceable anymore, so I'm in the market for a new 20 inch tire for my folding commuter road bike.
I guess I'm lucky I didn't damage the wheel. The Kojak is a little too thin for the type of road surfaces I go through. So for the future I'm trying to find a wider alternative to it, possible in the 1.5 to 2.0 inch range.
The Schwalbe Marathon series and the CST Sensamo Firenze come to mind, but I don't like the fact that they are quite heavy. The kind of riding I do involves a lot of stops and starts at traffic lights and lighter would be best. Also balder would be much preferred. Basically a wider Kojak would be perfect, but this does not exist I think.
Are there any other alternatives out there?
