<1.7 26" cross tire suggestion?
I built up a touring/cross bike this summer out of an early '90's Scott MTB (drop bars, bar-end shifters, cantis, etc.) and am having trouble locating good, fast, CX tires for it. I'm currently running 1.4" Ritchey Tom Slicks on it--they work great for pavement and easy dirt roads but I'd like to do a little more aggressive stuff with it--trails, mud, etc. Maybe even a couple of local cross races......
Can anyone recommend where to find something in the 1.0 to 1.4 inch range for a 26" rim that would work well for a little cross action? Smoothish in the middle with a few teeth on the side?? Any help would be great--I tried to search teh site but after 4-5 tries came up with squat.
