The blue coloured “anti-flat” stuff came peeping through, so I decided to buy a new set for my front wheels.
They did 10,000 kilometers and since a marathon is 42 km, the “plus” must be standing for about 19,958 kilometers 😉
Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres are made in Indonesia; so must be good stuff, because a lot of relatives live there !
Not a single flat during the 10,000 kilometers ! So I’m satisfied. While I was changing the tyres, I noticed I had to renew a broken spoke. It’s easy to renew a spoke of a Quest. I never had to dismantle the wheel for this job. A year ago I ordered about ten spokes at Velomobiel.nl and I had to renew 4 till now. I think that’s OK……. The front wheels get a lot of force sideways.
During the wear and tear of the tyres, I didn’t adjust the Cateye set-up. So the new tyres with their larger circumference will have a negative effect on my speed ……….. ;-(
