New tires for commute..need help

I have this bike http://www.bikepedia.com/QuickBike/B...port&Type=bike

I want to get skinnier tires for it. But I don't know what size I can get that will work on the rims I have. This page really does not give a size of my rim, and I don't know how to find out what it is.

Can someone help me with their knowledge of tires and rims and point me too a few tires that are skinnier than what I have that I can switch too for easier and more efficient commuting?

I would really like to do the purchase and switch them myself rather than my LBS. I like my LBS, but it's would be cheaper to do myself...but I need some help finding the right size and type...

Can anyone help?

Might try the "Bicycle Mechanics" forum - I'm sure they'll be able to help figure out what size tires will work with your rims.
