Thanks all for the input. According to the Schwalbe website, the Marathon Racer and Supreme are not available in the 27x1-1/4 size. I had considered Panaracer Pasela PT, but had warnings about sidewall strength. "You might be from Wisconsin if the roads are smoother in the winter because all the potholes are filled in with snow!" Due to pothole "splash out", there can be a lot of small stones along the side of the roads, particularly in the spring. I've had sidewall damage in the past for the stones I missed running over, but still got to close too.

I looked at the Gatorskins, but not too seriously. Wasn't sure how they would do on packed bike trails. I can take a closer look at them also.
