|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 !)

|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 Nashbar||cory|

|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.|| |
