Another good tire from Freedom WTB is the Ryder. I have the 700x32s on my Kona, they also have a 700x38 that might be a better option. They have flat protection, roll fast on pavement and have some...

This advice is spot on, I think either of them would be a better option than the Novara Buzz (at full price).

Definitely. If designers need to hit an overall price point for the bike and spend more on the frame, they have to cut back on other areas.

I'm going to go against the grain here and suggest you sell the bike (as is, unmodified) and get a new one that you can test ride first. It's the only way you'll really be happy with the results.
