Check out my new mountain bike. It flies down a trail...I want to put slicks on their as well so I can go on pavement with my friends. Has anyone does this before and how much difference do the tires make? I know there will be less friction with slicks, but will I still feel the fact it is a mountain bike if I am trying to build up speed?

Tires do make a big difference. They can change your rolling friction from 1% - 50%, or so I have heard.
