    Tires for Calgary Pathways

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for recommendations for tires for when I'm riding around Calgary on the paved pathways. I want something with low resistance but something that holds well in corners.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Conti Sport Contact...

    Great on Asphalt, pretty damn good on anything hardpack.

    Okay on the light gravel.

    For paved pathway riding, I'd suggest either the continental city slicker for a 26" tire (1.5" width, I found the 1.25" was damn near impossible to mount to a mtb rim), or a panaracer pasela for a 700C.

    FWIW, I used to commute on a geared 26" bike running city slickers (1.5") and currently am commuting on a 700C cyclocross SS running paselas (28mm). Although occasionally sketchy, either tire has held up remarkably well whenever I decide to add some singletrack on my rides (bowmont in the morning, sideshow in the evening).

    Additionally, with the incut tread, I find that either tread usually works quite well if it gets a bit wet out. Also, with no knobs, both tires corner great since there's no transition from center tread to outside tread when you lean the bike over for a turn.

    A pair of these would probably work better.
