Has anyone tried the Marathon Supreme's yet?

I want to get these, just looking for any recent reviews.

I ordered some, but received an email from Schwalbe today saying they were out of the size I ordered and wouldn't have any more until the first week of May.

I wrote them & asked if they were planning on making a 26" tire narrower than 2". They did respond with a definite maybe!!?? I am really excited about these tires, better pucture resistance & lighter than my current Marathons, but 2"?? Until they do make a narrower Supreme I am stickiing with my current ones. 26 x 1.5, 1500 miles, no flats.

This is on Nashbar's site. Anyone know what they really are? Schwalbe's site doesn't list "Marathon Trekking," unless I'm looking in the wrong place.

That's the standard Marathon tire. It's a good tire and that's a very good price for one.

They should rename these tires Nikes so there's no mistaking.

They should have made a 26x1.5, 2" is nuts, good size for urban. The tread looks a little thunkity thunk. I'd try them is they had my size.

Peter White Cycles says they have the Supremes in 700x35 and 26x2. I'm interested in hearing about these tires too. I'm also interested in hearing some reviews of the Continental Top Contact, which I don't think is available in the US yet.
