Hey chaps, I have put Schwalbe Marathon Cross tires on my new touring bike, mainly because I want to do on and off road touring, but until I hit the really rough stuff I don't want to use XR's.
I cannot find much info on the net about these tires, but so far they have been excellent! Greta grip on/off road, puncture protection, and Marathon tire compuond so the should last a long time. Does anyone else run these tires or have any info on them?
I have some 700x35's on my spare wheels for when I take my 29er on the road. Besides having a flat in the first 12 miles, they've been fine tires. Yhey've done a couple of metric centuries now. I'd prefer it if I could pump them up over 80psi with confidence, and the side knobs keep me from making any high-speed turns on pavement.
