Schwalbe Marathon and Schwalbe Marathon Winter). One was from a
roofing nail which was easy to find from the rhythmic tic-tic-tic and
the big freakin' nail sticking out of my front tire. The other was
when my rear tire, Schwalbe Silento II, decided that it had enough and
tore for about two inches right at the bead. Even the cheap Schwalbes
that came with my Trek L200 (Silento II) would roll just fine through
broken glass, wires, potholes, etc. that pockmark my route across St.
So the bottom line is that if you don't like flats, get some Schwalbes.
