    I assume you are running 26" wheels ... if so regular road tires (700c) WILL NOT work for you. Check into a Tioga City Slicker tire available in 26 X 1" - 1.25" - 1.5" - 1.95" sizes. The 1.25" is fast !! I used to run this size when FatBoy crits were popular during mtb stage races. Cost is about $20 from us.

    I've got some cheap wire bead Michelin wildgripper city clicks on a spare wheelset. Like $14 per a year or so ago from Performance-superGo Jenson whatever place. Work great on the ol parts bike HT.
