28mm Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres on a road bike



I’m looking for advice on fitting 28mm Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres to a road bike, B Twin Triban 520. I know the 520 can take up to 28mm, but I’ve also been told by a guy in cycle surgery that these would not fit on a road bike because of the type of rim (no idea what he means). On the flip side I’ve seen online posts about people fitting them on road bikes. Has anyone experience with these tyres, are the intended for Hybrids only?


Would there be an issue fitting these to the rims that come with the Triban 520? I ideally wanted 32mm but also need full mudguards.




Thanks in advance!
