    Schwalbe quality control

    Duranos aren't my favourite tyre (the blow-off pressure is laughably low, lower than the minimum pressure on better tyres) but they are quite comfortable. I got a new pair last week but the front one has a "kink" in it which is obvious when spinning the wheel or riding. The rim is perfectly...

    Schwalbe City Jet vs Conti Speed tyre?

    So whilst fixing up my old Carrera Subway, I replaced the no-name Innov tyres with some City Jets for hopefully a bit of a speed boost. I know it's probably a bit late in the day, however I wonder if I should've gone with the Conti's instead. Any thoughts? Or would there not really be much...

    Schwalbe Tyre Help Please!

    Hi all. 2 new Rocket Ron Addix Speed tubeless tyres just arrived. One of them appears to have some of the coating inside the tyre missing. A few patches along about 1/3rd of the tyre. The other tyre is perfect. It’s definitely a coating that’s missing, not a stain! Question for the more...

    "Progress"

    I love riding modern bikes but to be honest I'm not sold on a lot of the "advances" made in the cycling world over past decades; it seems that what we have now isn't necessarily simply "better" than what we had 30-40yrs ago. Granted there have been some very welcome and legit improvements; but...

    Schwalbe Big Apple balloon tyres

    Bike's had an annoying little bump once per wheel rev. Inspected the tyres and there's a bit of an indentation on one. Looks like a defect to me but I've no experience with these massive tyres. Thoughts? Schwalbe Big Apple 60-559

    Schwalbe or Continental?

    I appreciate I may be starting an argument second only to a h*lm*t thread, but here goes... I've been happily using Schwalbe Marathon Plus and Marathon Plus Tour tyres for nearly a decade. In that time the only real punctures I had was one caused by 'user error' ie me overloading the Xtracycle...

    Disappointing Schwalbe Lugano tyres

    Hi. As the title says I'm rather disappointed with the second lot of Laguno tyres I've got. There were being used on my winter bike and unlike the first lot (which were very good) these have not lasted long at all. They've still got plenty of tread but they have both failed over the months from...

    Schwalbe quality....?

    In June of this year I purchased 2 Schwalbe marathon racers from SJS cycles. Since then I’ve commuted 15 miles most days on tarmac . I run them at 60psi. A couple of weeks ago a slight egg appeared in the front tyre side wall. I inspected the tyre but couldn’t see any obvious damage, so I...

    26" Schwalbe Marathons sorted

    Just a chance anybody got a pr of these sat unused , would prefer 26 x 1.75 but would consider offer widths , before i splash out on a pr . Would prefer new but would consider used . Might even consider a different brand but would have to have good puncture protection .
