slick and resistant tires for mtb ?(4 posts)

slick and resistant tires for mtb ?PeterRider
Jun 13, 2002 11:38 AM
my sister in France uses my mtb while I'm not there. Since she goes only on the road, she could make use of slick tires. Here are the parameters:
- mostly for in-town riding, maybe tops 10 miles at a time
- if possible something resistant. It is more important that she avoids changing flats than being race competitive.
- if possible inexpensive (I will pay for them !)

Thanks,

Pierre
Panaracer Pasaela or Avocet CrossGregory Taylor

Panaracer makes a nice 26" tire that has a Kevlar belt. Last time that I bought a pair they were about $25 a pop. Not totally cheap, but they are a good quality tire.

I've also used the Avocet Cross tires -- they come in a decent range of sizes and seem to wear like iron.
2nd the Pasela, and they're $12.99 at Nashbarcory

I've been using Paselas on my road bike for a year or so--tough, pretty light and very durable. For mainly pavement, they're hard to beat. I also like Ritchey Cross Bites, but they're scarce.

Definitely not cheap $40-44 each but a fantastic tyre; rated for 80psi...I pump them to 110psi.
