Been announced today that evans will not accept any cycle vouchers that were purchased before ashley took the company over, what a great start from ashley looks like he will treat everyone the same as he does at sports direct, with utter contempt no doubt.

Schwalbe Marathon Race Tyre 700x38mm

Anyone had any experience of these tyres with regard to puncture resistance, general wear and tear, and are they suitable for dis-used railways, and canal tow-path, type use. Was looking to purchase the 700x38mm tyres which only weigh 485 grams. Thank you for any replies in advance.
