Disenchanted with Schwalbe Marathons...
I used to ride Continental Top Touring 2000 (700x37) tires and found them to be smooth-riding and reasonably durable. For me, they were the ideal tire, but they are no longer available. I had read many good things about Schwalbe Marathon tires, so I bought a couple ordinary, plain-jane Marathons (not the plus/supreme/slick/cross/whatever versions) in the 700x32 size. They are durable and have been flat-free..., but they ride like they're made of solid rubber. They just don't seem to soak up the road like the TT2000's did. Maybe it's just that I'm riding down a couple sizes, but I'm a little disappointed in the Schwalbe tires. Have any of you former TT2000 devotees found a suitable replacement? I'd like to hear about them. Thanks.
