Thx for the pointer. I just picked up a pair, with some tubes. My favorite 27" tire. I've bought 3 pair in the past for 3 vintage restorations. Noticeably lighter than the Marathons in the same size, and feel like it too, although a Schwalbe guy at Sea Otter said the Marathon had lower rolling resistance. To me, the 159's feel better.
