StarStarStarStarStar Good tire for Dahon with SRAM 3x7 or 3x8

Pros

Fixing flats is a pain on folding bicycles, especially ones with internally geared rear hubs. These hubs are not quick-release and it's a pain to be disconnecting and reconnecting cables. The tires are also difficult to get on and off the rim.

So I looked for a replacement tire that had the most flat protection and that was rated to at least 100 psi and that would not interfere with the fenders. That narrowed things down to one tire in the world, the Schwalbe Marathon Plus 35-349/16 x 1.35.

It seems to ride pretty well. The Dahon is not the most comfortable bike in the world due to the small wheels, and a high pressure tire makes the ride even rougher, but it lowers rolling resistance.

Cons

High price.

Pros

Great puncture protection and is a pretty fast, easy rolling tire. I ride highway roads with a lot of debris, no problem.

Cons

Not really a con if you watch the youtube video from the UK, but they are harder to put on with the bead.
