I appreciate all of the info...keep it coming!

Thanks for the advice on the fork and tires. I'll probly go with 26x2.0 with a light pattern/tread since I really don't want to buy new rims if I don't NEED to.

I'm sorry to ruin your fun, but I don't want to spend a great deal of $ on parts for this bike because I really like the bike the way it is, it's just not ideal for the road. I'm pretty comfortable on it right now (i.e. frame size, handle bars, and pedals are good), so I shouldn't need all that much to get on the road. I was actually checking out that fork on nashbar.com today...I guess I have good taste.

I'm going to check out some of the local shops this weekend to get some input from "the pros". If they don't have anything I want or are too $, I'll probly go with some combination of the following from nashbar.com

Forks: Option #1 or the cheaper option #2

Tires: Who knows...I'm not too worried about it :-)
