    My idea is to not sell them then. If you want to keep them. That way, you'd still have them.

    (unless you don't have studded tires)
    (no excuse for that either)

    26" right? Just get some slick/road tires for it. I whole heartedly recommend Schwalbe Big Apples.

    the Mamba is a 29er, so any 700c tire should work. get some 700x32-38 hybrid tires and narrower tubes and you will be fine.

    How much clearance does it have? Plenty I'd guess... I've got the 2.35" schwalbe Big Apples on my commuter 29er and I love them. They have a narrower version too, but I love the big ones.

    It's like a cadillac

    I have used Schwalbe Kojack's in the 700X38 (I think?...might have been a 35) size, and they were a good tire. There are some on a bike in the last page of the 'post your commuter photos' thread currently... they're basically a slick. Very cool looking tire in my opinion.

    Liking my Panaracer TServ PT's on my cross bike. Relatively light, flat protection, reflective stripe. I use the 32's on paved and dirt roads.

    Choices:

    400D Cord technology improves side cut resistance of your tire while improving the rigidity during cornering. PT Belt offers the same great puncture protection that PT Shield offers. The difference is that whereas PT Shield is bead to bead protection, PT Belted is placed only under the tread. Offering puncture protection while shaving off grams. The new ZSG Natural formula integrates more natural rubber into the compound. This compound has the same low rolling resistance as the premium compound and it has enhanced wear resistance making it perfect for a long wearing training tire. T-SERV PT
    T-Serv is a great performance tire for urban city use, incorporating ZSG compound, 400D Lite Extra Cord, and PT technologies. Hands down, T-Serv PT is the best urban strength to weight ratio tire on the market today. Need to get through your urban jungle quickly and reliably? T-serv PT is the answer.
