      How does a Continental Contact II 700c Commuting Tyre compare to a Schwalbe Marathon for puncture resistance please?

      Is it good enough?

      NB: Previous Schwalbe Marathon sidewall split. Normally, Schwalbe are really the biz. No punctures for 5000 miles good.


      Brighton = blue
      Albion = white
      Hove = just a little gold necklace stripe

      Can't really help with a comparison, but my wife has the Contact IIs on her bike and never had a puncture with them to date (not huge miles mind) and I actually think they are a fairly fast tyre for what they are. You pay a bit more for Conti's but generally they are very good tyres.

      If anyone knows a worse diy bike mechanic than me can they please introduce me to him/her as I need cheering up.

      Currently running to about 5 hours + just to replace a sram shifter and put on a new chain. Can't even get the so called 'no tools' Sram powerlink chainlink to lock into place or unlock again to have another go. And I haven't even gone back to gear indexing yet ( having wasted time on that already before realising I needed to order a new chain as the old one was stretched)
      I'll eall how long after I have got the wheel back on, new to hub gears Fiddly.

      My girlfriend's bike was stolen yesterday from our flat, other stuff too, but obviously the bike is the main thing.

      What would these #*@^s do with a £1,000 bike? We are trying to figure out the best way to get this bac and look where it would most likely be sold.

      It's a Cube WLS axial race bike in case anyone sees anything around picture below.

      Quite!

      Already looking on Gumtree and eBay, no luck so far. EBay seems like a bit of a needle in a haystack though! I might try some of the local shops etc...

      Done. One hour 20 minutes to thread (little wire and nut) the hub gears back on and the wheel back on. Derailleur and it would take five minutes tops.

      Really not having much luck at the moment. Just getting over my rib injury from last month, and now I've been bitten by a dog (last night) just after leaving work for a ride. Had to have a tetanus injection this morning, put on a course of antibiotics, & reported it to the Police. Nice big puncture wounds in my thigh & bruising coming out.

      FFS.
