    lightweight fatties

    im looking for a slick, or something with little groves between 1.75-2.1 for a 26'' mountain bike im converting to a commuter. i've attempted to do a few searches but really haven't found anything to satisfy my needs, i would prefer something that can go up to 80psi but 65 will work if it rolls fast. any suggestions?

    Maybe the Schwalbe Big Apple Liteskins would work they are a lighter version of the big apple. http://www.schwalbetires.com/big_apple

    Michelin Country Rock

    I like teh Michelin Country Rock tires. They come in 1.75" widths. I rode these a couple of years, year round, in all weather and they work great. They are cheap too!

    +1. I've had mine for almost a year and half now and they still have some meat left on them.

    I have a pair of Michelin CR and like them too. I also have Michelin CiTY tires that have Protek or something and sidewall reflector. Designed more for road and not as versatile as the Country Rock tires.

    Schwalbe Kojak 2.0. OK, maybe not the best "commuter" tire, but if you want fast and fat...

    I've been using Kenda Kommuters for about 6 months and they are fast and light. 85psi rating.

    Conti Sport Contacts go to 80psi and ride pretty well. Slick in mud!

    I had Schwalbe Marathon Race or something. They were awesome.
