I’ve been prompted by some discussions on Google+ about the recent design change to write this post.

I’ve already taken a look at the Giant PSL-2 and today we’re going to take a look at the Schwalbe Ultremo DD. This review comes after 4000km on the DD’s, which is enough that I wore the a flat strip on to the back tire.
