I really like the 26" Pasela, but wish it came in wider widths. The "1.75" only measures about 1.65" for me (although they technically fulfill the "42-559" on the sidewall.)



I'm riding 26"x1.8" Compass Naches Pass tires right now, and they're comfy and zippy (dig the "optimized tread"), but still only measure about 42-43mm. Pretty sure I have the clearance, so I might spring for the ~2.1" Rat Trap Pass when these wear out.



Oh, and in the winter it's 1.95" (allegedly) Nokian/Suomi Mount & Grounds. They make anything else feel fast and smooth when spring rolls around.
