"I bought this light to fix to back of my helmet which is what I've done. The only problem is that the way the light sits means that the button is a bit awkward to access. Not a massive problem but could be better. Another issue is that I had to replace the batteries after about 5 weeks. Probably just a dodgy batch of batteries. Apart from that the I like it, it's nice and bright and cheap."
Pros: Durable, Great Value
Cons: Poor Fit

As tyre designers, Schwalbe say the Ultremo is the pinnacle of their ambition. ZX - The best ULTREMO ever!

"I used these tyres for about 600 miles without getting hardly any punctures but when the punctures started coming, they started coming fast. It got to the point where it was every time I went out and even twice in a ride a couple of times. They are light and fast and look cool but I'm not sure I would recommend them. I don't think I'll buy them again."
Pros: Attractive, Lightweight, fast
Cons: Wears Out Easily

How does this tyre compared to the Hutchinson Fusion 3 Folding Tyre?

I have been using the Hutchinson Fusion 3 Folding Tyre for at least a year now and they were very good at being puncture proof. Just wondering if the Schwalbe would be better.
Don't know about the Fusion 3 but after about 600-700 miles the Ultremo became very prone to punctures for me. It's put me off them a bit.
