    Continental 2000 are always on sale and a solid performers or Specialized All Conditions, a little more money but a little more puncture protection..

    I would say Tom slicks still. They come in 650and 700c. 1.4 or 1 for width. Pretty light, not super light but that makes them resistant to punctures better than super lights. cheap too

    I'm trying out the dirt cheap 26x1.95 kenda k-rads on the singlespeed. They seem to roll alright, and they've got semi-decent grip for the occasional offroad jaunt. No idea how they hold up yet, though.
