    Can anyone recommend a good 26 inch tire for tubeless?

    I have a mtb that I'm thinking of turning into my around town shopping/commuting/tooling around with kids bike. It's currently set up as tubeless and I'd rather just throw a decent somewhat skinny tire on it and leave it tubeless. I know I can throw a tube in, but it's been great tubeless so why mess with it. I just need a a more road friendly tire. Lots of choices. Anything to help narrow down choices would be great. Thanks.

    Maybe a tubeless-compatible SmallBlock 8? http://aebike.com/product/kenda-toma...r5319-qc30.htm Not super-skinny, but at least it's relatively low-profile tread and not too expensive.

    Thanks. That's actually a pretty good option. I was thinking something more in the 1-1.5" range but skinny tires on my mtb would look stupid and these look like they'd go off the pavement okay too.

    EDIT: one more thing. I don't have UST rims but did the Stans thing years ago. Is the bead different or anything on a tire like this or will it work on old rims too? Thanks.

    It would work on regular rims too.
