Tire Suggestions....

Tried bumping the pressure on my rear tire a bit, from the maximum allowed 85PSI to around 92PSI (stupid pump always loses a few PSI when I take it off, started at 95).

Anyway noticed a nice difference, even though it was windy. Current Tires are Ritchey Tom Slicks, which are 26x1.4 inches. These tires have worked well, but I think are past their best before date, I have just over 3900km or 2400 miles on them.

Anyone know of a tire of a similar size (1.3 - 1.5 inch is okay), that can be pushed to 100PSI, but still under $25 each in Canada?
