I've got aging Avocet Cross tires on my old Bridgestone RB-T and they've been great tires. I plan on replacing them with Schwalbe Marathon tires. I've been using Schwalbe Marathon (with "GreenGuard") on my Bike Friday, and they've been superb tires. Though the patterns are different, both the Avocet & Schwalbe tires have inverted tread designs. Both seem to last a very long time, and I almost never get a flat with either.

Continental SportContact comes in two sizes in 26”: 26x1.3” at 350 gm. and 26x1.6” at 500 gm. I use the 1.6”. They seem pretty fast, very comfortable and very puncture resistant. If I were lighter and wanted more speed, I would probably try the 1.3”.
I was looking in my storage the other day and came across a pair of Avocet Cross II's in 26 X 1.5 new in the boxes. I'm using 700Cs now, so these are surplus if someone needs them. Make me an offer. Robert 415-305-1322
