Stores that carry a Schwalbe Marathon in 700*32 in stock

Anyone know of any stores between downtown and Edgewater that have this tire in stock?

It has been a while, but I bought mine "off the rack" at Rapid Transit on North Avenue.

Not specifically on your way, but I picked a pair up about a week ago at Comrade Cycles.

Not thrilled with the Supremes, a lot more $$ for not a lot more flat security.  This happened this morning :(

Online, yes.

Got one 32mm and plenty of 28mm and 35mm Marathon Plus(es) at Roscoe Village Bikes.

You do realize that the Supreme is not resigned to be more puncture resistant but to be highly puncture resistant AND have a much lower rolling resistance than some of the more puncture resistant Marathons, right?  The Supreme is not going to be as puncture resistant as the Plus or Plus Tour  but is going to be a much better riding tire when it comes to rolling resistance and grip.

That is also a big piece of glass; no tire is puncture proof just puncture resistant and something that size hit right will flat ANY tire.  I used to really be on the bandwagon for the Marathon Plus and similar tires but now I would rather change a infrequent flat and have a bike that rides much nicer.

Thanks for the suggestions. I found a marathon tire at J..C Lind

Regarding the Supreme, it's by far my favorite tire for city riding. It balances flat protection , a smooth ride, and good cornering . Have them on most of my bikes and had only one flat in 6 k miles.
