I really like my Marathons...I'm not sure where "heavy" or "hard" is coming from, but I've heard that, too. I'm 320, and the 26x1.75 Marathons on my MTB commuter feel pretty good. I like them well enough that I'm putting 700Cx38 Marathons on my Raleigh Sports I'm working on.

However, Continental makes good stuff as well. I'd think you'd do good with either.
