    [451 - 20x1-1/8 tires] What is the best option?

    Hi there

    I'm gonna build a 451 wheels for my mu uno. The rims I've already chosen the Velocity A23, but I don't know what is the best option for tires. Basically I use my bike for commuting and where I live there are many potholes on the streets.

    What's the best in this case? Kenda kwest, schwalbe durano, schwalbe ultremo zx, panaracer minits light, intense mk2, primo comet? Speed and durability are welcome.

    Please people share your experiences with 20x1-1/8 tires here

    thanks!

    I like the Panaracer Minitis Lite for speed.. currently on a Pacific Reach Racer (451) and a Moulton TSR-20 (406) .. I haven't had durability problems, but then I don't ride pot holes often ... if I were looking for a balance between speed and durability (where I expected to beat up the tires), I'd go with the Primo Comets .. proven durability, low rolling resistance, and inexpensive .. you really won't find a slow tire in 20x1 1/8 as they were all meant for fast road bike use.. I also like the IRC RoadLite .. my 2 speed Mu Uno runs on 451 Stelvios.. I'll wear them out before I switch to any of the other options.. on a single speed coaster brake bike, I don't think it will matter too much which brand you go with in that size..
