    Looking for a high-pressure slick tire for my spare mtb wheelet

    Hi
    I have a spare mountain bike wheelset of 26 x 2.1 and am trying to find a slick tire that I can put on. I 've seen some that can take up to 65PSI, but I'm looking for something more in the 100 PSI range (simlar pressure to a road tire).

    Does anyone know of any?

    Thanks
    Mike

    Look no further than the Kenda Kwest. I've got a pair on my spare wheelset in 26x1.5 pumped up to 100psi.

    That's great, thanks. I'll look into those.

    2.1 would be your current tire width, not the rim width.

    If your rims aren't too wide: http://www.conti-tyres.co.uk/conticycle/ti%20ultra%20gatorskin.shtml

    I double-check my wheelset specs and 1.5" is the minimum width.

    Kenda Kwest comes in a standard version and a high pressure version. Standard is only spec'd for 65 psi, so be sure you look for the high pressure one.

    Schwalbe Marathon is also an option.
