So i've started riding to work on my Raleigh Oakland. I fitted my Marathon plus tyres and pumped them up to 70 psi. After a couple of trips i noticed that the rims had splayed out and the tyres were coming off the rims. A quick trip to a couple of LBS' and they confirmed that my rims were knackered and they may as well have been made out of plasticine. I phoned Raleigh and they sent me a couple of replacements. stuck them on and the same happened. I'm now looking for a couple of decent wheels but i'm on a tight budget. Not a good start. I thought it might have been the tyres so i tried some different to no avail.
