Half price Schwalbe tyres @ On-One

I know there are a few MAMILs on here (including myself), so here's a deal for y'all:

Until January 1st we're offering a range of premium Schwalbe folding tyres at a massive 50% off RRP! The market leading tyres for all applications and every one HALF PRICE.

We've gota huge range- Alberts, Rons, Bettys and Mary's in the latest and most technologically advanced compounds and tread patterns. There are even tubeless ready models to get you rolling at lower pressures...

The only catch is that it's a pre-order. The tyres are on their way from Germany and are due to arrive 10th January. In these days of austerity we thought you'd appreciate the deal and wouldn't mind the wait!

Check the full range below but be quick- at these prices they won't hang around...

Some good value tires on there. I used to run Marathon Plus on my road bike and they served me very well, not a single puncture in over a year.

One thing I would say regarding the Marathon Pluses, they were a PIG to fit on my wheels, I would definately recommend getting some metal tire levers to get them on.

They were just a really tight fit to get on, but once they were went on they have not come off.

what's a good tyre to put on if i've got a mountain bike (that new carrera vengeance ultimate) but want more of a hybrid/slick for when i'm riding in towns?

It's got 26" rims btw... Worth investing in some larger rims?

All about hutchinson top slicks here, 26*1" no rolling resistance, sorted.

Still too expensive, and anything good is out of stock.

Some of the best tyres you can get there.. Maybe not as fancy as continentals, and may be heavier. But for longevity and grippiness.. Awesome..

got to say I'm on my second set of marathon plus tyres, and fitting them confused the hell out of me until I looked for videos on how to fit them on youtube. I can now swap a pair of them in about 10 minutes, without tyre levers, only using a couple of shoe laces (videos recommend cable ties). they have been really good tyres and have only changed them due to a buckled wheel from a slight accident with a pot hole.

26" Rims are fine, there are some slick tyres out there that will fit. From this deal I would possibly look at either Schwalbe City Jet MTB Tyre or Conti Sport Contact Tyre (these are out of stock atm tho)

Ah yes I have found the video now!

I had no complaints with the tyre in terms of performance and durability, just for someone new to fitting the tire they were a struggle to get on the rims. Though if you have a good LBS you could ask them to fit them for you.

I have the Marathon plus ones on my MTB at the mo and they are excellent! I haven't had a puncture in ages whereas I used to get them every week before my oh fitted these on my bike. I have also done a mtb challenge with them on and they are excellent all rounders I would say. Thanks op, heat added.

I cover about 5,000 miles per annum commuting. I have used Specialized Nimbus for years and recently on my second set of Hemispheres which suit me more as they are slightly wider. Bothe types last for ages with no punctures.

Decent tires for a good price. Heat! :D

With regard to getting on tough tires like Marathon Plus I've done lots at work on difficult rim combinations and have never used levers (just thumb power) or punctured the tube when fitting. It's best not to use tire levers as you can damage the tube\tire\rim.
...sorry if my post sounds like i'm being a smartarse or somthing but just trying to help :)

Here's a few tips for getting tyres on:
-Very small amount of air in tube so it just about holds it's shape
-Start at the valve and work around to the opposite side
-Most useful tip with really difficult ones is to make sure the tyre is sat in the middle of the rim profiles as it curves inwards and effectively gives a smaller circumference to get the tyre around.
-As a last measure to prevent the tube from getting caught between the tire and rim when inflating I also pinch the tyre from both sides all the way round then roll the wheel\tyre on the ground whilst applying a small amount of force.

Hopefully that helps at least one person :)
