Tire recommendation needed 26x1.75 for ROAD
I'm looking for some 26x1.75" tires for road use only. I see that Kenda makes some, as do Panaracer and Continental. I'd prefer WTB Slickasaurus, but I don't think they make a 26x1.75, only a 26x1.5.

I'd appreciate recommendations. Thanks!

Thanks, CHenry - Specialized makes good stuff, but I see that the Nimbus series (like the WTB) is ONLY available in 26x1.5 size. I really want that extra quarter-inch of tire width. Any secondary recommendations?

Continental City Contact

I use the Sport Contact in 700x32c on one of my fixed gear bikes. They are super tough and long wearing. They don't make a 26x1.75 but do make a 26x1.6.

A little too much tread for me but in your size:

Thanks much, Dogbait! The "Contact" tires seem about what I'm looking for. I'll Froogle'em and see what the market can do for me.

I appreciate the suggestions!

I use Continental City Contact 26x1.75 tires on my comfort bike. Very well-made tires, smooth rolling, absolutely no problems. Give them a try.
