    My wife has just got a roadbike and is about to start training for ‘that’ ride, starting at the top of Scotland and finishing at the bottom of England.

    I was going to buy myself a roadbike but to save a bit of cash I’m just going to put some road tyres on my hardtail to give me half a chance of keeping up on her training rides.

    Top of the list is Schwalbe Marathon 26 x 1.3/8 Touring Tyre @ £25.00, seems a bit lighter than average, has some puncture protection, and appears to be a sensible width for my 24mm rims.

    Any other suggestions?

    I used to use Conti Ultragators on my commuter. Fast and puncture free.

    Panaracer Ribmo’s are the best 26 inch road tyres i have ever used and many will say the same. Good puncture protections too.

    Schwalbe Kojaks here, love them even though they lack the rad of the Super Motos!

    The sport contacts are pretty slow and heavy but very puncture proof. Gatorskins & Grand Prix are much faster, as is Spesh All Condition Pro.

    Not Michelin XC 26 inch slicks as they puncture if there is some glass on the other side of the road.

    Nokians used to be good, not sure if you can still get them.
