what 26" touring tyres?
Sorry its a tyre thread..
Planning a bit of a tour round scotland mostly/all road, 26″ wheels.
Does any kind soul have any suggestions as to what tyres? was thinking Schwalbe Marathons but they seem weighty (if puncture resistant)?

yes I got the marathon pluses & they are over 1kg each. However, they are bombproof & true fit & forget stuff so the weight premium is worth it for touring or road work.
I got them off here as wasn’t sure I needed them, I have ridden over glass deliberately & they work. Last summer I was puncturing every week with the sharp rock here & nothing since so deffo, go for it.Posted 6 years agomcmoonterMember
Schwalbe Marathons FTW
On the transam, I went through a Randoneur in about 1200 miles. A Specialized Armadillo in about 1800 miles. The Marathon after 1300 was virtually unworn.
My eventual riding buddy rode 4300 miles, fully laden across the states, on the same Marathons without rotating them with tread to spare.Posted 6 years agoSpinMember
How strange, my earlier post disappeared…
I did a months tour in Newfoundland on Panaracer Paselas including a fair amount of unsurfaced road. No punctures and they rolled well on road although I did have them at 80 psi instead of the max 65 they recommend. Easy to get on and off too which I hear can be a prob with Marathons.Posted 6 years ago
