These tires have a great feel, wear like iron and will take a lot of road garbage. Recommend these to anyone considering a great commuter tire.

In my area there is a problem with thorns causing flats. Eight years ago after three flats in three weeks, I started looking for a better tire. I found the Continenatal Gatorskins and purchesed a set. After a year with NO flats decided to obtain three mores sets for my 27 road bikes. Continental had just come out with their Gator Hardshell and these were purchased and installed. In the past six years, with four bikes, riding on paved roads, I have had no flats due to punctures from thorns, glass or nails. This past August, I came across another road bike and started a restore project. In November I was ready for another set of tires. First thoughts were for Continental Gatorskins or Gator Hardshell. Could not find a set anywhere at local stores or on the internet. Everyone says they are out of stock but will be available shortly. Well, November, December 2015 and January 2016 has come and gone with no hardshells available in 27. Started looking at other brands and found these Schwalbe Marathon 27 tires that should meet my requirements for thorn proofing and ordered a set. After two days they arrived. They really look great. However, installed with problems. The rear tire would not turn. Had to remove the rear brake light bracket to obtain tire clearance. With the bracket removed there is plenty of clearance but will have to buy another light bracket that will fit above the brake. Front tire installed and seemed to be all right but with the wheel spinning I could hear a clicking noise. Finally discovered noise was caused by the top of the tire making contact with the bottom of the fork stem. There is only about a 132 clearance at the front of the fork and the tire. The small (new rubber) projections make the noise when hitting the bottom of stem. They should wear off after a few miles. The front brake actually has about 116 clearance. Will this will make a difference in the live of the tire or effect the ride is the question. The stand over height of the 23 bike frame is now 33 18l Up from 32 34. This is a 23 Frame, Schwinn Super LeTour 12.2 road bike with 27 wheels. Original wheels are 27x 14 Araya alloy rims and Schwinn Super Record 27x1 18 tires. At this point the four star rating is due to the over all diameter of the tire.

A little heavy, but a great tire, and the reflective sidewall is VERY visible, even if not approaching perpendicular to the side of the bike. Bought for my son's 10-speed, primarily due to other reviews and safety of reflective side wall, and seems great.

I was pleasantly shocked at how smooth and great handling these hard wearing tires felt on the road. It changed the whole feeling of my 1969 Raleigh Sprite from a 6 to 15 mile coffee bike to a daily choice bike for 20 to 40 mile rides. I am now in the process of changing all my work bikes tires (including the Ebikes) to Schwalbe Marathon and Marathon Plus.

Although I've just installed these, I already love them. They seem very high-quality in all regards. Very thick & durable-feeling under the tread, solid bead that seats nicely, and they look great on my bike. My only issue is with the way these tires were twisted up into a square box of a width roughly half the diameter of the tires. I wish I could attach images here so everyone could see how mangled up one of them was. I left the tires out for 14 hrs before installing, just to see how permanent the folds in the rubber would be. After that time, the structure of the tires looked almost entirely normal, so I went ahead with the install. After airing up, they look nearly perfect. I expect, due to the quality of the material, that I won't have any issues with these tires, but I'd much prefer to have had them shipped to me in better condition. Will consider paying more to another retailer for my next set for this reason alone.

This tire seems to do long term durability very well. Almost zero flats due to the flat protection built in. Tire roles easily. I'm quite heavy and the rear tire sidewalls give out before the tread does. Rear tires last about a year and a half in regular service. I ride 10 miles or more every day. My front tires go for years and usually the sun finally gets them. I use Pedro tire irons and can get them on the rims. They are a tight rim fit but doable. I split my riding between street (asphalt), and dirt/gravel roads. It was a happy surprise when I found out they were fine dirt/gravel road tires. Of course we are not talking about huge amounts of off road traction or flotation. Hard dirt and gravel roads are fine at a moderate pace.

Used this tire for long distance riding - 1,000 plus miles in 12 days over backroads and highways, including shoulders covered in nasty debris - no flats! They were mounted on a 1972 steel farme Nishiki Semi-Pro that was loaded with touring bags front and back. These tires are awesome!

In my area there is a problem with thorns causing flats. My rides are on paved roads. Over the years I averaged at least a flat per month usually during the fall season. Then over a three week period in September, I had three flats. Decided I needed to find a more thorn proof tire. I found these Schwalbe Marathon, Green, 27 tires that should meet my requirements for thorn proofing and ordered a set. After two days they arrived. They really look great. However, installed with problems. The rear tire would not turn. Had to remove the rear brake light bracket to obtain tire clearance. With the bracket removed there is plenty of clearance but will have to find another bracket that will fit above the brake. Front tire installed and seemed to be all right but while setting the brakes with the wheel spinning I could hear a clicking noise. Finally discovered noise was caused by the top of the tire making contact with the fork stem bottom. There is only about a 132 or less clearance at this point. The small (new rubber finstits) projections above the tread make the noise when hitting the bottom of stem. They should wear off after a few miles. The front brake actually has about 116 clearance. The overall diameter of the tires more than fills my bike frame. This is a 23 Frame, 1976 Schwinn Super LeTour 12.2 road bike with 27 wheels. Original wheels are 27x 14 Araya alloy rims and Schwinn Super Record 27x 1 18 tires and plenty of clearance. Be aware this could effect your bike the same.

In all fairness, I do not own this tire. But I had the same problem as a previous reviewer in that the tires kept pushing off the rim at higher pressure. It turned out that it was'nt the tire. It was the rim. The older rims you find on some vintage bikes are straight at the lip. I could only run my tires at about 70 pounds, which is fine, but I wanted more. I found a beater bike with some decent alloy rims at a yard sale. These rims have a hook or bead at the rim lip . After switching out the rims I can now run my tires at 90 pounds with no problem.

I like the construction of this tire yet it does take my inertia to get them moving as compared to standard weight tires. One thing all cyclists who choose to ride on these tires, DON'T over-inflate these to anywhere near 90 PSI, the tires will literally peel away from the rim and pop the inner tube in a heartbeat. I have to run these at between 75-85 PSI max. due to this problem. My tires are 27 x 1-1/4 so they take less air then a convention 1-1/8 tire.
