Schwalbe Citizen

Has anyone used them/want to comment?

Planet X are selling them at a good price, at the moment, & they're the reflective sidewall derivative too, which is rather good
Sadly, they're only in a '35' section (I'm on '28')
They seem primarily to be a Marathon, but maybe with a lesser carcass??

'Senior Managements' Boardman has a pair, but I can't really ask her about ride-quality, longetivity (only had it since June), 'cornering ability', as Up To Press, she only commutes 4 miles to work on it

Pre mudguard fitment
493877 493878

I did trial-fit her front wheel to see how they looked & clearances

They came as original fitment on my Tern admittedly in 20 X 45 I think. I commuted happily on them for two years with no fuss or dramas. I'm really not sure of the mileage I got out of them, bit it was a fair bit. A couple of punctures in that time, but nothing excessive. I prefer the narrow Kojaks that I'm running now, but the citizens were fine and did the job.
