    Choosing 27" Tyres

    I want to get some slick or as near to slick tyres as i can for my touring bike with as little rolling resistance as possible

    The bike has 27 x 1 1/4 tyres and they're fairly hard to come by in much variety.. and cheaply

    Whats more, I live in England so I seem to have even less choice

    I've been looking at the Conti ultra sport tyres http://www.allterraincycles.co.uk/product.php?pid=9547

    and

    Hutchinson V3 Kevlar's http://www.allterraincycles.co.uk/pr...php?pid=100732

    but I cant seem to find much info on them... does anyone have any ideas or advice on either of the tyres or any other options

    Thanks Ed

    I used the 27" Panaracer Pasela tires (tour guard version on back) for many years (commuting) before I got a flat. They are pretty light and fast too. I found them at my LBS but you can order them through the mail from Harris cycles: http://sheldonbrown.com/harris/tires/630.html
