|Are Schwalbe tires any good compared to Axial Pros? Saw them at a trade show and was mildly interested.|

|I've not used Axial Pro's but have used Conti GP 3000, Axial Selects, Vredstein Fortezza's and Schwalbe Neo Blizzards. They're subjectively fast, reasonably comfortable, excellent puncture resistance due to a kevlar belt and good traction. Worth looking into if you can find them.|

|as above, I haven't tried Axial's , but can tell you the schhhhhhwalbe Blizzards give excellent puncture protection (so far). I've ridden on them for 600 kms ( ~400miles) with no punctures and am becoming more confident in them riding directly over broken glass (not intentionally ofcourse).
|You can order them online--I've been looking at 'em||cory|

|Haven't tried them, but I've been checking them out on the website, which I was going to give you except now that I've started the reply I can't find it. Just for fun, check www.schwalbe.com, or else scwhalbetires.com.|
