This is my first post in the Touring forum. I want to convert my lighter wheelset on my otherwise XC mountain bike into a set of semi-road wheels. Judging from what I have seen from tire manufacturer websites, the tires I'm after should be classified as "Touring". I'm a bit of a weight-weenie, so I've been frustrated at not being able to find a light touring tire. I'm looking for something under 450g, for a size 26x1.75. Low rolling resistance is the only other feature I'm after since I'm going to be doing mostly concrete pavement riding with this wheelset. If my Panaracer Speedblasters (26x1.95) are 420g, I don't see why these tires have to be so much heavier. Durability? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
