have both, yes. both are great in very different ways. the marathon plus is a very heavy, very long-wearing, extremely flat resistant tire. the big apple offers a very sweet ride and decent toughness, but not anywhere near as tough as the marathon plus.

put the marathon on the bike you least want to deal with flats on, and the big apple on the fun bike. hopefully that works out. it probably doesn't.
