Marathon Winter Update

Since the temperatures went-up above freezing again, I took the Marathon Winter’s off the Blue ICE and mounted a new set of Schwalbe Big Ben again.

Rode the Marathon Winter for 70km, lost 8 spikes at one 24″ front wheel and 12 spikes (!) at the other. The brand new Marathon Winter 50-559 at the rear lost none.

Pretty disappointed with the 2-year-old, but unused, 24″ tyre set. The set of 20″ Marathon Winter I rode for about 360km at the front of the black Sprint two years ago, didn’t lose any spikes.
