    any kevlar bead 26" road tires?

    looking for some slicks for my mountain commuter, up until now I've been running worn out conti twister supersonics, that weigh like 330 grams a piece, roll pretty fast, and are 1.9" wide

    So shopping for slicks I can't find anything lighter than my mountain tires , anyone know who makes a 300 gram or less slick 26" tire. I would prefer around a 1.2" size, but could deal with 1".

    Here you go: Panaracer Pasela TourGuard kevlar-bead, 26 x 1.25". They're about 29mm wide inflated, and very light (~255 grams). http://aebike.com/page.cfm?PageID=30...ils&sku=TR2261 There's also a Panaracer T-Serv for a few bucks more, which would have longer sidewall life since the sidewalls have a light coat of rubber.

    I use those tires with this extra-light tube, which is technically a 650C tube: http://aebike.com/page.cfm?PageID=30...ils&sku=TU9215

    I have a riding buddy who raced a local crit...on his Epic. He swears by Spec's 26x1(.25?)Fat Boy Slick.
