    Recommendations for high PSI 26" slicks for my mountain bike?

    Hi, I have a mountain bike, but I am riding with people who ride road and track bikes. I would LOVE to buy a road bike, but I cannot afford one as of right now. So I was hoping for some recommendations on tires for riding the streets.

    Thanks

    Another question, for use with WTB SX24 rims, I think they are 17mm interior width and 24 exterior, what tire width would be okay? As in, how low could I go?

    I have some Michelin Transworld City tires on my LHT I found on sale at Nashbar that I really like for road riding.

    Vittoria Randonneur Cross. I'm sure there are better, but I know these are great having put 3,000 miles on mine. They do well on dirt, and ok on gravel, but are really grippy on wet roads.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    I have a pair of these on my mtn bike, and used it to climb Mt Evans last year.
    Cruising at 45mph on the descent between Echo Lake & Idaho Springs, they handled superbly.

    Gonna throw in my opinion too, I'm on my second set of Kenda Kwests, they're 26x1.5 and you can get them in 60PSI, flat-resistant, and 100PSI versions. Found a pair for $25 online, I'm very pleased with them.

    Best I've used are Conti Contacts.. Super Narrow - 1.3" wide.. I could easily get 100 psi and they rode just like road tires..
