4548Re: [rootsradicals] Re: Continental Town & Country VS Schwalbe Marathon XR?
- Jun 2, 2008That's good to hear, thanks! I think I've decided on trying out the T&C's. My LBS has them in stock, the price is nice, and I'll get a discount on top of it for membership in the local bike coalition.
Marathon XR's are definitely still on my radar though, especially after stoutag's glowing review. I figure I'll run the T&C's for a while and when it comes time to replace them I'll switch to the Marathons to compare.
I do like the Big Apples as well. For some reason I had edged towards the Marathons though and I've read so much the last few days I've forgotten as to why haha.
After riding around today I couldn't find anyone stocking Vulpines. But since I'm in SoCal and Devian seems to think they wouldn't be best here anyway I think I'll wait for his field report on those. =)
Thanks a lot for the responses guys, you rock!

I put a set of 2.1 town and country tires on about 900 miles ago. I
also read the reviews and was leary of buying them. I ended up
getting a set because of the price. I have yet to have a flat and
I've ridden them on gravel and dirt fire roads with a load, on
pavement in the rain, on debris strewn bike lanes, over mown down
thistles and weeds. My only complaint is that they seem a little
sluggish, although that could just be me. I'm actually thinking of
getting a set of schwlabe marathons for my wifes commuter/touring rig,
I may slap them on the xtra just to do a comparison.
