Okay, I have been a pure roadie for my entire life. Anyhow, I ended up with Trek 950 with a 1" (I think) travel Manitou front fork. I have always been disdainful of people on paved trails with suspension bikes on the paved trails in my city. However I am finding great fun with this thing. I can ride up curbs, neat!
So, I am having fun with this thing riding over crap I couldn't do with my road bike. After all of this rambling I would like some suggestions on tires. Are half slicks worth it? I am not doing any free riding, but I am finding myself taking on some crappy trails just for the hell of it. With my current knobbies riding on streets is hell because of the constant buzzing and the feeling of losing energy via way too fat tires with way too many knobs.
Should I get half slicks? What size? I am currently running 2.10" full knobbies. Any suggestions?
