* Summer * Tires

I'm already in the market for new summer tires. I'm looking at the Schwalbe Marathon, anti-puncture, reflective stripe.

More about me: Boston suburbs, on-road cyclist, Trek FX commuter hybrid.

Can anyone please suggest anything better, if it exists?

I can tell you that a better forum probably exists to find summer tires than Winter Cycling.

It's a good time to ask the folks in Australia what they're using, though.

ya but don't forget, if you do that, when mounting the tires they recommend, you have to place the "direction" arrow facing the other way or you get a hemispheric harmonic imbalance.
