HI...newbie here. I've been out of the MTB scene for a while and need to come up to speed on new equipment.
I ride a Fisher Mt. Tam (2000) and have mostly lately been riding in and around town, so the stock wheels and tires have a bit too much drag for my regular biking. The stock wheels and tires are fine for the limited and light off road stuff I do nowadays.
I would like to build a set of wheels that are a little more street friendly, but am unfamiliar with what the popular hubs/rims/tires are for street duty on a mountain bike these days. I don't want a totally bald tire (do they even still make them?) because sometimes I have to evade through someones yard ;-)
Any suggestions or sources would be appreciated.
