Got lucky with the tape I had. Up first go with a normal track pump and no sealant. Schwalbe seem to have nailed this TL thing.
Because I know you love the details...
Schwalbe G-One Ultrabite 700C 2" comes up at 49.2mm on the stock Spesh Sequoia "Hayfield" wheels. The (old model) 45mm WTB Riddler comes up just under too at 44.6mm (but it's getting swapped soon for a 44mm WTB Raddler for da tubeless).
Any opinions on Schwalbe Marathon Supremes? I’d been considering the Marathon Plus for commuting but the supreme seems almost as durable and not quite as hefty but maybe a bit pricey, anything else worth a look? 700x32.
Supremes should not have 'marathon' word attached to it.
Please consider them in the likes of Rene Herse tyres but with absolutely amazing puncture protection.
Thanks, just to confirm it’s the ‘Supreme’ you are comparing with Rene Herse? I should maybe just buy them then.
Grabbed a pair of the new American Classic tyres for the shopping bike, the g-one knockoff in 40c. Price was irresistible and worth being a guinea pig (hopefully).
yes, I have a pair on a bike atm and have hoarded another pair :)
had them in past on various bikes, absolute flawless
Hutchinson Tourareg 650x47 on i25 = 47.4mm
Pirelli Cinturato M 650x50 = 52.5mm on skinnier i23 rim.
I’ll take your recommendation and act swiftly before you buy up all remaining stock, am I right in thinking they’re now discontinued? They’re replacing gravel kings in 32 which fitted under my guards with a cigarette skin to spare so hopefully they won’t be any bigger.
I'm local (US) so Amazon here. If this lot sells out quick I assume they'll do international distribution before long.
