jmichaeldesign, the Schwalbe Marathon XRs provide a good ride, are not too heavy (595g for the 1.6"), not too slick / not too chunky, reflective sidewall and have great durability and puncture protection. Perfect for touring IMHO. Not exactly a vintage look though. Rob
PS. It's a shame there's a large ocean between us (I'm in Aus) because I have four 2" XRs I'm planning on selling -- the fit was just a little tight on my new bikes' frames and the dealer wouldn't swap them(!) -- bought some 1.6" XRs elsewhere.
