So i've been biking on a 26x1.95 kenda tires that came on my sedona. I wanna switch to something more narrow, slicker, and higher pressure. I'm thinking 26x1.5 but dunno if it will hold my ubber weight (360) i'm curious what a good slick and strong tube would be reccomended. All I do is mainly flatland cruising with an occasional crushed gravel road. Damp surfaces occasionally, no real road hazards but i'm thinking 80-90 psi....any info appreciated thanx guys/gals:thumb:

Well, there's as many tire opinions as there are people here! There are many, many great options for you. On my commuter I have been using Continental SportContact, 26 by 1.6, 80psi. I started using them when I was about 290 pounds and they have served me faithfully for about 10 months without flatting. Click on "The Rig" link in my sig for some pictures.

I like the Michelin Pro 3, and since the Pro 4 just came out you can get them for half price. The Pro 4, I understand, is only slightly better, but not the $40 better you would pay for them.
