Well, how would you rate the standard Marathons as far as feel? I've been really pleased with an old set of 700x28 on a Peugeot, but the 27x1 1/4" seemed twice the weight. I know they changed the formulation, but this is ridiculous. I'm finally getting used to them after about six outings but they changed the riding dynamics of the bike for sure.
Btw, I had the Kenda's also, on a rigid mtn bike. They seemed fine at the time. They're 440g in 20x1.5". Sure would be nice to compare the same tires on the same bike. They also sell the Kwest in 65psi or 100psi. Higher psi/higher price = more supple? Any opinions on this?
This BF has to compete with a garage full of vintage bikes. I really love the NWT but doubt I'll be racking up big miles on it.
