Thread: Schwalbe Marathons

  1. #11
    Thank you, toto. I now know more about the tire materials. I was about to order marathon from my local bike shop (same price as sport aid and $10.00 to install… Better use for the money than shipping) but now I will order right runs. :-)

    This site rocks.

    I have to agree with those who love right runs...I love them! Hardly any rolling resistance, very lightweight and great response. Definitely worth the money for them!

    How do Right Runs and Marathons do off-road? I've been using 1 3/8" knobbies - I know the Schwalbe tires will have less rolling resistance on-road, but how do they do on grass and gravel?

    I was rockin 1 3/8" wheels for 8 years before I got my GTX with 1" wheels. I didn't know the 1 3/8 were considered "out-door" wheels. I can't really tell a difference out side with the 1". They're much faster inside though. I think the width of the front wheels determines out-door performance more. Not much though. I went from 1" casters to 1.5". Not much help but some.

    What type of tubes do you need for right runs? I'm thinking of purchasing a pair for my new chair, right now I have Kenda gray and I don't like the color.

    A normal tube for a tire 1" wide.

    This would be an interesting tire too, we`ve got it in all sizes and is thinner than MP´s RR´s
    It has 3/4" wide is less ressistent rolling.
