So, first ride of the year last night. Just a bit of a "testing the waters" type ride with the boys to the bar and back...
My vintage (read: original) tires on my Univega are now too rotten to hold a tube in. I have a small cut in the sidewall where the tube is pushing its way out right next to the rim.
So, it's now time for new tires. Does anyone have any recommendations on replacement tires for my 26" rims that would be on the fast end but still cushy enough to handle our mostly broken streets here in town? I also intend on doing some distance riding (I would actually say that a majority of my riding is road sight-seeing type stuff over commuting, but I've set a strong commute goal for myself this year so my comfort there is priority) so lighter and slimmer can be considered a preference but the size of my rims seems to be an obstacle.
Cost is a bit of a concern, but I'm willing to put down some money for quality.
